Hi Thomas,

In the future, would you post installation questions to "ncl-install"
intstead of "ncl-talk".

Meanwhile, NCL V5.1.1 is the latest version, so you should download
this source code
before you do anything else.

"ymake" should recognize an x86_64 system, so please try this:

  - Download the V5.1.1 source code.
  - "gunzip" and "tar -xvf" the source code in a directory where you
have plenty of space
  - setenv NCARG to the top directory (as you did before)
  - Edit $NCARG/config/LINUX and make any necessary changes to the
compilers and compiler options
  - Run:


   to see if it recognizes your system.

If it doesn't, please email me the error message, the
$NCARG/config/LINUX file,
the output from "uname -a", and the type of compilers you're using.
