Dear Amber users,

I have been trying to compile amber8 on a 64bit machine with Xeon
processors. I have tried with both gcc and icc as the C compiler. I have
got the most built with configure -p4 -static ifort. however it does not
build Xleap. When i go to the test directory and do make test most of the
tests fail with a segmentation fault. I comment out the bad test from the
Makefile and do make test again and I can tell you that the only ones that
do not give errors are Run.nonper, Run.nonper.belly, Run.nonper.belly.mask,
Run.cap (possible failure), Run.nonper.nocut, Run.pol_wat, Run.ubiquitin,
Run.dna_pol, and Run.pdpgb (possible failure). The others all fail with a
SIGSEGV error with the exceptions of Run.dmp, Run.adenine and
Run.nonper.min(and the nmode tests) which just say Segmentation fault
(core dumped), and
Run.tgtmd (in all directories), and Run.trajene which say if: Expression
Syntax. I think there were many warnings in the output when i did make
serial, so I guess its just not compiling properly. How can i get it to
work please, i have been trying to compile this for over a week now.

Thank you in advance for your consideration,
