I use netcdf7 from fink on my Mac OS 10.7.2.
Then I downloaded python2.7 + numpy + scipy from fink as well and used per-compiled binaries for PyNIO and PyNGL.
Works fine.

I'm asking because I'm having some problems with HDF4 and netCDF on my OS 10.7.2 Mac and the only reason I'm including HDF4 in my build chain is because the INSTALL file says it's non-optional. According to The HDF Group, HDF4 is not yet supported (or at least tested) on 10.7 and they don't have a timeline for it (nor do they know when HDF5 will be officially tested!). I need a problem-free install of netCDF sooner than later (now would be nice), but I don't want to introduce PyNIO problems by not installing HDF4.
