Dear allI've been trying to install AmberTools15 & Amber14 on a MacBook Pro (OS X 10.11.6).When I try to execute either ./configure -macAccelerate clangor./configure -macAccelerate gnu(also w/ and w/o the -macAccelerate)
I'm invariably left in this endless loop:
Checking NetCDF... Using bundled NetCDF library. Starting NetCDF build. Configuring NetCDF C interface (may be time-consuming)...c^CError: NetCDF C configure returned 1       NetCDF configure failed!  Check the netcdf_config.log file       in the /Users/mirko/my_CNS/Amber/amber14/AmberTools/src directory.Configure failed due to the errors above!
the corresponding lot file is not very informative:
configure: netCDF 4.3.0checking build system type... x86_64-apple-darwin15.6.0checking host system type... x86_64-apple-darwin15.6.0checking target system type... x86_64-apple-darwin15.6.0checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -cchecking whether build environment is sane... yeschecking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... ./install-sh -c -dchecking for gawk... nochecking for mawk... nochecking for nawk... nochecking for awk... awkchecking whether make sets $(MAKE)... 
I know this issue did come up before (Mon Nov 30 2015 "mac hangs when compile amber tools on el capitan" by  YY). But as far as I can tell, Jason's last suggestion referred to command-line components and then the trail went cold....I tried my best to follow your helpful suggestions Jason using macports etc but I'm still stuck and wondered whether someone had additional comments/suggestions to trouble shoot this.many thanksMirko
