Can you give us some more information about your environment:

What arguments did you supply to the configure script?

What are the values of CC and CFLAGS in $AMBERHOME/src/config.h?

What does "gcc --version" report?

What does "uname -a" report?

This problem seems to be pretty specific to particular compile/link
environments. While you are waiting for a resolution(!?!), you might try
to compile a static version on some one else's computer (if that is possible),
and see if you can move it to your system.
