You found a bug in the udunits2(1) program. Thank you for sending this in.

I've made a new release (2.1.21) whose udunits2(1) program correctly accepts 
the specification "1/cm3" as the "have" unit. Please try this release and let 
me know if you have any problems with it. It's available at the UDUNITS 
homepage <http://www.unidata.ucar.edu/software/udunits>.
