Vijay, The file "make.log" contained this make: Entering directory `/home/vijay/ncview-1.93d.tar.gz_FILES/udunits-1.12.4/src/lib' gcc -c -g -O2 -I../port/misc -I../port/cfortran -DUT_DEFAULT_PATH='"/home/vijay/ncview-1.93d.tar.gz_FILES/udunits-1.12.4/etc/udunits.dat"' -Df2cFortran utlib.c and also this gcc -shared -O2 -g -pipe -Wall -Wp,-D_FORTIFY_SOURCE=2 -fexceptions -fstack-protector --param=ssp-buffer-size=4 -m64 -mtune=generic UDUNITS.o -o blib/arch/auto/UDUNITS/UDUNITS.so \ -L/home/vijay/ncview-1.93d.tar.gz_FILES/udunits-1.12.4/src/perl/../lib -ludunits -lm \ /usr/bin/ld: /home/vijay/ncview-1.93d.tar.gz_FILES/udunits-1.12.4/src/perl/../lib/libudunits.a(utlib.o): relocation R_X86_64_32S against `a local symbol' can not be used when making a shared object; recompile with -fPIC So it appears that, if you want the Perl extension module, you'll have to rebuild the UDUNITS library using the option "-fPIC". Try this: 1. Go to the top-level source-directory. 2. Execute the command "make distclean". 3. Set the environment variables like the last time. 4. Ensure that the CFLAGS environment variable contains the string "-fPIC". For example export CFLAGS='-fPIC -O' 5. Rebuild the UDUNITS package as before, starting with executing the configure script.
