Do you have complete write permission to the amber directory? Are you
certain there are no temporary files in the directory that are owned by
anybody else - so preventing you overwriting them? Do you have enough disk
space / quota?
Try running the following line manually and see if you get a more
informative error message:
ar rv sys.a sys.o wallclock.o

You might also want to create a fresh amber8 source from the original tar
file and try the compilation again. In this way you will remove any existing
files from the amber8 directory that are not owned / writable by you.
All the best
