The current git repository of the netcdf package works for me with Octave stable, closing as fixed.

There hasn't been a 1.0.12 release yet though.

In future do not hesitate to request access to the git repository and apply changes directly there.
Thanks again!

Thanks John for the patch. I applied it and made the release 1.0.12 with your patch.

Recent changes to dev octave have removed some global path variables, which are checked for in the packages configure, even though they are not used.
