Which are the non-Windows instructions.  On Windows the libraries are 
statically linked into the binary package (and BTW, it is udunits2, 
not udunits, these days).

ncdf4 is available for Windows from the author: see 
http://cirrus.ucsd.edu/~pierce/ncdf/ . However, the author does not 
make clear that is a non-standard 32-bit-only build.  The main reason 
that there is no Windows binary on CRAN is the lack of 64-bit support.

And ncdf is also available for Windows.
