     1. Run ./configure, with some options if you wish. The standard
        options are documented in the INSTALL file. The configuration
        script has some more options; type 'configure -h' to see them.
        The most interesting ones are the usual
        --prefix=<installation directory> and
        --with-netcdf=<netCDF root directory> to enable netCDF support.

     2. Do "make" to compile the library.

     3. (Optional) Do "make install", possibly as root if the destination
        permissions require that. This installs CDI in the directory
        specified during configuration. The default prefix is /usr/local.
