New version from upstream; thanks to Arch user fhs. The README for this version says that there is no more dependence on lex/yacc-like tools. I tried it without flex/bison installed, and the build failed due to the absence of a yacc command. I don't understand this, but I kept flex and bison in the makedepends array so it would build.

as far as I know, it is because hdf4 provides it's own version of netcdf, but not complete version (like only part of files). There is hdf4-nonetcdf in AUR which does not conflict with netcdf (it is version with internal netcdf disabled).

why does hdf4 confict with netcdf? on all my previous workstations it was no problem installing both hdf4 and netcdf4 in parallel. this seems like a showstopper at least to me ...
