This is unusual, since we rarely have problems with IRIX :-)

Some things to try:

1. Run some of the other tests (esp. dhfr, gb_rna) to see if all the tests
   are failing (without MPI).

2. Check your machine file against the one at the "Running Amber on SGI IRIX"
   link at the Amber web site.

3. Contact Roberto Gomperts (his contact info is at the above web site)
   to see if he has any ideas here.

...good luck...dac
