The problem seems to be with local instalation of NetCDF - compiler can 
not find includes (netcdf.h: No such file or directory). You can either 
copy netcdf includes and libraries to system locations or fix setup.py:

              ['Src/MMTK_DCD.c', 'Src/ReadDCD.c'],
              include_dirs=['Include','(path to your netcdf.h)'],
              library_dirs=['(path to your libnetcdf.a)']
