Subject: AMBER: amber compilation

I need help with compiling AMBER. Following the instructions in the amber
manual, I have tried to compile amber7 and amber8 on 3 different machines
and the compilation failed on all attempts. Note that I followed exactly the
instructions in the amber manual.

Besides, it is very unclear to me what goes wrong or how could I get a
constructive response from the compilation process. I could use some
support in that direction.

On my last attempt, I tried to compile amber7 on a Suse linux machine
with g77 compiler suite. Following the manual I set the AMBERHOME
variable and then typed (from src directory):

ln -s -f Machines/Machine.g77 MACHINE


make install

The compilation went on for a while and then stopped with the message:

cd gibbs; make install
make[1]: Entering directory `/usr/local/amber7/src/gibbs'

If I comment the line corresponding to GIBBS in the Makefile, there is
an error for leap:

cd leap; make World
