[ferret_users] Defining long_name and standard_name for an axis

How does one set the attributes 'long_name' and 'standard_name' for output to netCDF on an axis?
I can do this for a variable:
  DEFINE ATTRIBUTE/output PSAL.standard_name = "sea_water_salinity"

but for an axis defined like this:


I don't see how to set the long_name or standard_name.
I'm trying to get my data set to pass the CF compliance checker which is complaining like this:
Checking variable: LONGITUDE
WARNING (3): No standard_name or long_name attribute specified
