External Libraries Needed To Build MET

    BUFRLIB v10.2.3 for reading PrepBufr Observation files
    NetCDF for intermediate and output file formats
    GSL GNU Scientific Library Developer's Version for computing confidence intervals (use GSL-1.11 for PGI compilers)
    GRIB2C Library, if compiling GRIB2 support.
    f2c Library for interfacing between Fortran and C (Not required for most compilers)
    HDF4 Library, if compiling the MODIS-Regrid tool.
    HDF-EOS2 Library, if compiling the MODIS-Regrid tool.

arrow MET is not yet compatible with BUFRLIB version 11.0.0, released 04/27/2015. Please use BUFRLIB v10.2.3

arrow Compiling GRIB2C with the -D__64BIT__ option requires that MET also be configured with CFLAGS="-D__64BIT__".
