GRIB PDS length

I need to read GRIB files that have PDS lengths of 88 bytes. NCL cannot read
them, giving a "Corrupted record" error message. wgrib can read the files.
NCL can also read the files if I reduce the PDS length to 80 bytes or less.
Can NCL be modified to handle longer PDS sections? The GRIB spec allows the
PDS section to be quite long, 2^24-1. Thank you.
