I am attempting to install the netCDF module into R on a computer
running solaris 5.8 but it keeps saying it can not find the required
netCDF libraries & header files, error below. I have run configure, as

./configure --with-netCDF=/usr/local/netcdf-3.5.0

To configure the path, but keep getting the following error.

climate at netCDF : > R CMD INSTALL /home/climate/murphyb/netCDF
* Installing *source* package 'netCDF' ...
loading cache ./config.cache
checking for ncopen in -lnetcdf... no
configure: error: libnetcdf not found
ERROR: configuration failed for package 'netCDF'

I know it is a path problem but can not find the file to modify to
get the correct path. Know doubt this happened before but could 
somebody tell me what to modify to correct this problems.
