Step 1 would be to

cd $AMBERHOME/test/
make clean
cd $AMBERHOME/src/
make clean

This would be a start to reclaiming you space. If you want more you can delete the test directory. You can delete quite a bit of the src directory. In theory you should be able to delete it all except that mmpbsa for some reason uses files inside the src directory at runtime. In principal, except for mmpbsa, you can delete everything except the exe (bin) directory and dat.

All the best
