I am trying to install an opendap-enabled binary of ncl on mac os x
10.5. I am excited to finally have ncl w/opendap capabilities on the

However, when I run ncl, I get:

[graupel local]$ ncl
dyld: Library not loaded: /Users/haley/tmp/5.1.0/lib/libnc-dap.3.dylib
  Referenced from: /usr/local/bin/ncl
  Reason: image not found
Trace/BPT trap

I have this library from macports
[graupel local]$ locate libnc-dap.3.dylib

I tried
[graupel local]$ setenv LD_LIBRARY_PATH /opt/local/lib
[graupel local]$ setenv NCARG_ROOT /usr/local

to no avail.

Is there an option to set the path to this library explicitly?
