Hi All:

I am having challenges in building UPP 4.1 on MacOS Big-Sur.

While I was able to get the NCEP Libs prereq libraries installed, I get the error below for the main UPP 4.1. Build.

Link to Build Log:

I have followed some "JFGI" guidance from Mike Kavulich on the USF *comment-204* regarding changing aspects of the makefile_dtc and "renaming-out" sorc/ncep_post.fd/makefile. However, I continue to get the same error with respect to not being able to create the kinds_mod.o object file.

I'm out of ideas and I'd very much appreciate any tips.
