Thanks, Jennifer and Andrew, for your valuable suggestions.

By using MacPorts for GrADS 2.2.0 installation, I must report the same bugs
Jeniffer pointed out on missing libraries.

Then I installed the 2.1.b0 bundle version,  and so far it seems to work
properly on my Mac OS (High) Sierra. I also installed the OpenGrADS version
2.1.0.oga.1 (retrieved from their website) and it also works properly.

If I face some troubles when using I will make you know.
Many thanks, again, for all your support.
