Hi Jeff,

The Vis5d interfaces were implemented awhile back by somebody who is no longer here.
They were never heavily tested, and I had found some minor problems with them.

So, it's likely that you have a version of NCL that was compiled with the Vis5D option turned off.

If you need Vis5D support, you may want to consider building NCL from source code. You would
need to answer "yes" to the "do you want Vis5D" support when you run $NCARG/Configure, and then
you have to build the necessary Vis5D libraries:

Or, I can try to provide you with a newer NCL binary that has Vis5D turned on, if you let me
know what kind of system you have:

   uname -a
   gcc --version
   what flavor of Linux (RedHat, Debian, Ubuntu, etc)
