I don't see how this is going to do you any good. Amber10 is not
functional without AmberTools.

This does look to me like a code bug that other compilers allow.

You could fix the error in that line (remove the beginning "&"), but it
might be better to add the "-nosanderidc" flag to the configure switch.
That will skip compilation of the divcon stuff, which is definitely less
portable than most of the rest of sander.

If some user with access to a SunOS/solaris machine would update the web
page describing installation on such an OS, that would be very helpful.
