    Trying to build snapshot downloaded 10 Jan 2010.

    After doing:
    env NETCDF_INC=… NETCDF_LIB=… ./configure -enable-dap-netcdf

    I get the following:

    configure:16657: checking for nc__opendap in -lnetcdf
    configure:16682: gcc -std=gnu99 -o conftest -g -O2   conftest.c -lnetcdf -lcurl  >&5
    /usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lnetcdf
    collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

    i.e. it is failing to add -L… (and also -I…) in the gcc command line. The result is that the test fails, so it wrongly disables opendap.

    I can work around it by adding setting variables CFLAGS=-I… and LDFLAGS=-L… explicitly, but these should have been implied by the NETCDF_INC and NETCDF_LIB variables which I set.

    the NCO build system is not, err, overly robust. patches would be appreciated.
    thanks,
