netcdf package only providing static libs is a completly different issue. 
In that case there is no shared libs upstream. In my opinion, it is nice 
if you add support for shared libs in the fedora version, but this is 
certainly not a requirement as it may be a fair amount of work, and may 
conflict later with what is done upstream. My personal advice in that 
case is that it should also be worked out with the upstream and avoid 
doing specific things in fedora core, in case the upstream is willing to 
cooperate. 

The case I am discussed is when there are static and dynamic libraries,
and I am advocating, in some case, to distribute the libraries (be it in
-devel or -static).
