[netCDF #IGU-289396]: Error building netcdf fortran library

Hello Andi,

Thanks for providing the config.log files; I think I've sorted out the problem.

From the 'failing' config.log, I see the following when the various sizeof() 
checks are being run:

    ./conftest: error while loading shared libraries: libnetcdf.so.7: cannot 
open shared object file: No such file or directory

Since the error is happening at runtime (not compile time), this suggests to me 
that libnetcdf.so.7 is not on your LD_LIBRARY_PATH.   As you've installed 
netcdf-c into /usr/local, try the following when you run 'configure' 
for netcdf-fortran:

    $ CFLAGS="-I/usr/local/include" LDFLAGS="-L/usr/local/lib" 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH="/usr/local/lib" ./configure --prefix=/usr/local

I recognize that the CFLAGS and LDFLAGS may be unnecessary, but I would prefer 
to be thorough on my end just in case.

Let me know what happens when you try this; if it still fails, please send me 
the new config.log that is generated, thanks!
