You need to do:

setenv DO_PARALLEL 'mpirun -np 4'

or export if using bash.

Note you may need to subsitute mpirun with whatever your mpi installation
uses to launch mpi progs. You may also need to start up the necessary MPI
daemons e.g. lamboot or mpd.

Check page 9 of the Amber 9 manual.

All the best
