Indeed, I believe GCTP is not maintained anymore, and each project using it

changed March 1998.

In this case, I think it's appropriate to use the bundled GCTP. What do
others think?

It's not a lot of work to submit a patch for HDF-EOS5 with the bundled GCTP, 
but I'm afraid that other packages which depend on two libraries that each 
bundle (a version of) GCTP (such as HDF-EOS2 and HDF-EOS5), will run into 
problems. There would be either a conflict due to multiple versions of libGctp, 
or, if we statically include GCTP in the libraries that use it, conflicting 
symbols when we link those libraries, no?

For this reason, maybe using a separate GCTP package, and adding a patch to 
projects that use it, is the best solution after all?  Development of GCTP and 
most packages that depend on it seems to be mostly finished anyway, so 
maintaining the patches might not be that much work.
