Hi folks,

I've been working offline with Guangshan Chen who attempted to build
NCL V5.1.1 on a 64-bit Mac OS 10.6 (snow leopard) system.

Unfortunately, there was a problem building the HDF4 library, and the
HDF folks do not have a fix yet. Guangshan contacted them and they
responded that they will be getting such a system soon and hope to
get it working.

Until this happens, building NCL from source code will not be
possible, because HDF4 is not an optional package.

You should still be able to run a precompiled binary built under Mac
OS 10.5. This will be a 32-bit binary, however. If you need to run
WRAPIT, you will need to make a change to it so it uses the 32-bit

Guangshan provided a fix, see:
