[netCDF #HHB-930547]: configure netcdf-fortran-4.5.2 error: C compiler cannot create executables


`--disable-dap`and `--disable-netcdf-4` are options used when configuring 
'netcdf-c', not 'netcdf-fortran'.  You can ignore the warnings you received 
from `configure` for netCDF-Fortran.  From the `config.log` file you provided, 
it appears that netCDF-C (libnetcdf) is not installed on your system.  You will 
need to first install the netCDF-C libraries, which may be downloaded here: 
https://github.com/Unidata/netcdf-c/releases.  I am not very familiar with WRF 
or their installation instructions, so you may want to contact the WRF team to 
see if they can provide information regarding a specific version of netCDF-C, 

I hope this helps, have a great day,


> Hardware: The Ubuntu 22.04.3 OS is installed in an external drive, which I 
> connect to my computer.
> Description of problem: Hello. I am Brian Añano, and I would like to ask for 
> help in solving an error I encountered while building the netCDF library for 
> the WRF (Weather Research and Forecasting) Model in my Ubuntu 22.04.3 
> computer. I was about to install netcdf-fortran-4.5.2 by entering these set 
> of commands in csh:
> tar xzvf netcdf-fortran-4.5.2.tar.gz
> cd netcdf-fortran-4.5.2
> ./configure --prefix=$DIR/netcdf --disable-dap --disable-netcdf-4 
> --disable-shared
> make
> make install
> setenv PATH $DIR/netcdf/bin:$PATH
> setenv NETCDF $DIR/netcdf
> cd ..
> The error appears after I enter ./configure --prefix=$DIR/netcdf 
> --disable-dap --disable-netcdf-4 --disable-shared, after which the following 
> appeared:
> configure: WARNING: unrecognized options: --disable-dap, --disable-netcdf-4

> How do I troubleshoot this error? For your additional information (if this 
> helps in pinponting the problem), I am running Ubuntu 22.04.3 on an external 
> drive connected to my computer. Attached herewith is the `config.log' for 
> your reference. Also, I'm new to Ubuntu 22.04.3 so I'm very much 
> inexperienced in running Terminal commands, so I would really appreciate it 
> if I were given precise steps in troubleshooting this error, including the 
> commands to type if any.
> Thank you very much.
