I have created the following ticket, please add any information there,
especially the patch to configure. I will see how to resolve that
issue on linux also.
The CF compliance checks (in netcdf_cf.py) can be skipped safely and
are optional, no need to install the cfchecker. The important tests
are in netcdf.py which deal with netcdf-4.
