Yes, the ncview & gmt FTBFS were directly caused by only having the MPI
variant available. Most others were only caused by the non-standard HDF5
library paths that were all fixed with the patched nc-config & netcdf.pc.

After the GCC 5 transitions are completed we need to revisit this topic
and take Gilles up on his offer to help netcdf support co-installable
MPI variants as HDF5 does. To process large dataset this is an important
feature to support.
