Subject: AMBER: amber10 installation problem

Dear Amber Community:

We are trying to install the parallel version of pmemd in Amber10,
without success.

Our system is is opteron, 64 bit. pgf90 fortran. The os is Suse10.0.
There are infiniband interconnects and mpich 1.2.7

MPICH configure:
--with-device=ch_gen2 --with-arch=LINUX -prefix=/usr/local/mvapich-pgi
--with-romio --without-mpe -lib=-L/usr/ofed/lib64
-Wl,-rpath=/usr/ofed/lib64 -libverbs -lpthread
MPICH Device: ch_gen2

The configure command is

configure linux64_opteron pgf90 mvapich

We appear to get a successful generation of the makefile (after answering
two questions re: mvapich location and infiniband location).

The "make" command output ends with the following error message:

/usr/bin/ld: cannot find -lmtl_common
make[1]: *** [pmemd] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/local/amber10/amber10/src/pmemd/src'
make: *** [all] Error 2

We have looked and cannot find libmtl_common*

We would appreciate it if anyone could point us in the right direction.
