Installing NCVIEW for Ubuntu

Recently I ran into problems installing NCVIEW, which is a tool for efficiently viewing the contents of a NetCDF data file. The problem was something to do with the X terminal. So here's how to install it from source:

sudo apt-get install libxaw7-dev
tar -xvvf ncview-1.93g.tar.gz
cd ncview-1.93g/
./configure --x-libraries=/usr/X11R6/lib
make install
