As the first step of AMBER 8 parallel compilation, I was trying to install

My machine is dual-processor xeon - single box - it has hyperthreading.
'top' command gives 4 cpus.

uname -a gives

Linux localhost.localdomain 2.4.21-4.ELsmp #1 SMP Fri Oct 3 17:52:56 EDT
2003 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux

My fortran compiler is intel ifort (9.0.021)

I used

setenv CC gcc
setenv FC ifort

./configure -prefix=/home/pradipta/test -with-device=ch_shmem -cc=$CC -fc=$FC

make install

I am getting the following error
Testing if Fortran77 application can be linked with graphics library

-I/home/pradipta/mpich-1.2.7/include -c fxgraphics.f
fortcom: Error: /home/pradipta/mpich-1.2.7/include/mpif.h, line 192:
Syntax error, found ')' when expecting one of: ( <IDENTIFIER>

Did anyone experience this?

Also, for the steps afterwards, I learned that I need to make the
machines.LINUX file as


Is there anything else I need to do for SMP machine (like adding the
hostnames to /etc/hosts)?

Thanks a lot.
