The above message contained the following:

Probably.  The function julday_to_gregdate() in the UDNITS library
doesn't have a Fortran interface.

You could use any another routine that converts Julian day-number to
Gregorian date.  Alternatively, you could modify the file "lib/utlib.c"
in the UDUNITS package by adding


just after the definition of the julday_to_gregdate() function.  At
least I think the above is correct -- you should verify that it does the
right think by executing the command "make utlib.i" in that subdirectory
and then examining the JULTOGREG subroutine.

The two functions -- julday_to_gregdate() and gregdate_to_julday() -- were
never intended to be used outside the UDUNITS package.
