The "animate" function of the pre-compiled binary of ncar on Mac OS X
Lion crashes. I don't know if it is a X11 library computability problem
or something missing in the installation.

Reading instruction and notes for Mac at I see a line:

"If it echoes "10.7.x", then you should be able to use the above binary,
but you may also need to install "gfortran" via MacPorts:
sudo port install gcc45 +gfortran"

So I suspected I have to use MacPort gcc and gfortran. However, the
installed the installed gcc and gfortran are located under
/opt/local/bin and named gcc-mp-4.5 and gfortran-mp-4.5 receptively.

If I don't want to move everything (bin, include, library etc) to the
system directory /usr/local, what should I do to tell ncar use the
Macport compilers and libraries? Do I need to manually edit scripts
ncargf90 and ncargcc?
