Thank you very much for your contribution petronny!

I updated the package to include your patch.

I fixed it with

     CFLAGS="${CFLAGS} -fPIC" \
     LDFLAGS=" ${LDFLAGS}" \
     F77=gfortran \
+    JAVADOC='javadoc -Xdoclint:none' \
     --enable-fortran \
     --enable-production \
     --enable-java \

It's a bug with java-enviroment>8. And this patch works with java-enviroment=8. Please fix it.

No idea how to fix it...

Fixed. It was a configuration issue. The hdf4 autoconf infrastructure is quite dated and on top of that the rpc headers recently passed from glibc to libtirpc, so changes were needed to the configuration script.

This package does not compile. It fails will error --enable-hdf4-xdr does not support 64bit

I'm having trouble building this package.

Problems with missing: hdf4-java/src/hdf-4.2.13/bin/missing: Unknown '--is-lightweight'

Problems with FORTRAN: gfortran: error: unrecognized command line option '-V'

But then this is what kills it: configure: error: --enable-hdf4-xdr is not supported for 64 bit mode.

Build log here --> log.txt

Also, I have:

$ archlinux-java status
Available Java environments:
  java-8-openjdk (default)

Does it matter what java I'm using?
