The NCARG32_ROOT environment variable is not part of the NCAR Graphics
installation or environment. This was apparently something that
whoever wrote the above script did in order to switch between a
32-bit and 64-bit version of NCAR Graphics.

I'm guessing they were having problems with the 64-bit version of
ctrans, so they installed a 32-bit version, and set up this special
environment variable to allow you to switch.

Please check with your system administrator about what NCARG32_ROOT
should be set to.

The "i686" indicates that you have a 32-bit version. So, perhaps
you don't need the NCARG32_ROOT. Try modifying this script
and changing NCARG32_ROOT NCARG_ROOT. Be sure to comment the
