#54122: ncview fails to build if dependency is active

 Just tried to install ncview on a Yosemite Mac OS X. It fails with the
 following message:

 Error: ncview cannot be built while hdf5 is active.
 Error: Please forcibly deactivate hdf5, e.g. by running:
 Error:     sudo port -f deactivate hdf5
 Error: Then try again. You can reactivate hdf5 again later.
 Error: Failed to configure ncview: hdf5 is active
 Error: See
 for details.
 Error: Follow https://guide.macports.org/#project.tickets to report a bug.
 Error: Processing of port ncview failed

 I have attached main.log to this ticket. It works fine if I disable hdf5,
 attempt to install ncview again and then reactivate hdf5.

 This ticket might be related to [https://trac.macports.org/ticket/54049],
 but looks more like a Macports thing that a dependency issue.

 Any ideas?
