when I try to emerge netcdf the configure script could not find the 
"C-equivalent to Fortran routine "SUB"... nm: conftest.o:". Here is the 
comments out of the emerge : 
emerge netcdf

According to what you write, you're using gcc 3.3.x- according to emerge
info, it's 3.2.3. Could you please try gcc-config to check/set the compiler
version? There seems to be some confusion. I could not reproduce your problem
with both gcc versions. I'm setting this to INVALID, if the problem persists
feel free to add comments to this bug.
Comment 3 Eric 2003-10-31 06:56:08 UTC
Oki seems to have had a confusion:

First try to emerge netcdf was done using gcc-3.2.3 as the emerge info output
says. But I also tried gcc 3.3.1 as someone suggested in another bug report.

Nevertheless I found the origin of the problem this morning: the problem
was that f2c was also installed on my machien. unmerhing f2c netcdf merged
without any problem.

I thank you all for your help resolving the problem.
