[Support #HYJ-545150]: [udunits] problem with utopen & -ludunits

I'm not familiar with the package MRG CDFconvert, so I'll only be able to give 
you generic help. You might wish to contact the developers of that package.

Yes. utopen(3f) is the function in the Fortran-77 interface of the UDUNITS 
package that opens the units database.

> But I'm not quite sure what -ludunits defines.

"-ludunits" is a reference to the UDUNITS library for the linker/loader 
utility, ld(1).

Does the library "libudunits.a" exist? If so, use the nm(1) utility to 
determine if it contains the utopen(3f) function.
