I have no experience with 10.5 at all, but it seems others have had  
similar problems with other Python extensions using external  
libraries, e.g.:


Unfortunately there is no solution in that thread.

One possible cause could be that by default, a netCDF installation  
does not include a shared library version, which is required for use  
with Python extension modules. Make sure you build netCDF with the  
option --enable-shared to configure.
