I think that this error actually is a problem with 'sh' as opposed to
g++. What is the output when you type 'll /bin/sh'? My guess is that
it's not pointing to bash. The configure script is supposed to be 100%
sh compliant but sometimes bash-like syntax makes it in there. At any
rate, as long as you have g++ installed you should be OK.

This is the real problem. Have you actually checked netcdf_config.log
in "$AMBERHOME/src"? Can you please post it as an attachment?
