Howdy Ralf and Ralf!

h5cc is from HDF5, which is a scientific data format library, used for
meteorology and climate studies. I am working on a project to in some
sense combine this with a competing data format called netCDF.

I very much appreciate your help! You were both correct, the problem
is with h5cc. When I use gcc instead make works perfectly. (But my
code doesn't compile! This is something I have to work out.)

I'll take a stab a figuring out why someday, but for now I'm just
happy to know that automake works (as I was sure it must), since this
is my first time using it.
