22 12/2021 WRF v3 and v4 Patch provided here Issue with WRF compilation The error in your compile log was :
 landread.c:68:10: fatal error: rpc/types.h: 
 No such file or directory
  68 | #include 
     |         ^~~~~~~~~~~~~
 compilation terminated.
 make[2]: [../configure.wrf:363: 
 landread.o] Error 1 (ignored)
This problem can appear on recent linux distributions because the rpc directory has been moved from instead of /usr/include/rpc/types.h to /usr/include/tirpc/rpc/types.h
Put the option "-DLANDREAD_STUB" in CFLAGS of mychimere/config_wrf/configure.wrf.gfortran (~line 178) ?
 CFLAGS         =   $(CFLAGS_LOCAL) -DDM_PARALLEL \
                     -DMAX_HISTORY=$(MAX_HISTORY) \
		     -DNMM_CORE=$(WRF_NMM_CORE) \
		     -DLANDREAD_STUB
