The above message contained the following:

Interesting.  Because the above is definitely NOT a malformed
preprocessor directive, I'm not sure what's happening.

Perhaps a different extension will cause the compiler to preprocess the
file correctly.  Try renaming the file from "udunits.inc" to "udunits.F"
(you'll have to change the name of the include-file in your source-code
as well).

Please let me know if this helps.

BTW, I can't easily read BASE64-encoded email.
