error building netcdf-fortran in intel parallel studio xe 2016 update3

Hi all, after build netcdf 4.4.1, i'm trying to build netcdf-fortran 4.4.4 (netcdf 4.4.1 is ok), with intel parallel studio xe 2016 update3, in rhel Enterprise Server 7.2.

'configure' and 'make' are ok, but 'make check' stops with:

ftst_rengrps.F(49): error #6404: This name does not have a type, and must have an explicit type.   [NF_NETCDF4]
      call check(nf_create(FILE_NAME, NF_NETCDF4, ncid))
compilation aborted for ftst_rengrps.F (code 1)
make[2]: *** [ftst_rengrps.o] Error 1
make[2]: Leaving directory `/root/libs/netcdf-fortran-4.4.4/nf_test'
make[1]: *** [check-am] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/root/libs/netcdf-fortran-4.4.4/nf_test'
make: *** [check-recursive] Error 1
[1]+  Exit 2                  make check &>check.log

Asked netcdf-support, and here is the answer:


Unfortunately I'm not familiar with intel parallel studio; it clearly looks like a compiler issue, but I don't have an environment where I can try to recreate this problem.

The Intel documentation provides some instructions for compiling netCDF-Fortran, found at the following address:


It may be able to provide some additional information that I lack.

I'm sorry I can't provide a more immediately useful or applicable answer, but hopefully this information will be helpful!

Have a great day,



All log files are atthached

I´m stuck at this point and I hope your help make my day ;)
