This is odd: the Makelist file is clearly there in the distribution:

loyd2% tar tfz amber8.tgz | grep Makelist

Check your amber8/src/lib directory: is there a Makelist file there, and is it

It is always a good idea to search the mailing list archives for similar
reports. Pasting "Makelist: not found" into the box on the amber web site
pulls up:

and similar. While there is no real resolution there, the problem might be
that there is no /bin/csh interpreter -- is that possible for you? (Hard to
believe that Ubuntu 7.10 doesn't have csh....)

These ideas should get you started.....good luck....dac
