I do agree that extra compiler combinations are overkill, so I again
removed the options for gcc+g95 and gcc+ifort. Besides, there is not
so many counter arguments, either. At the same time, I checked-in a
change that fixes a problem of netcdf that coughs up errors on pgi
compiler. Just adding -DpgiFortran to the CPPFLAGS will do the trick.
