I've got access to Solaris, IRIX and OSF1.

I've just attempted configuring AmberTools on both Solaris 8 and IRIX 6.5.

It doesn't even try to use the native FORTRAN compilers. I've explicitly
prevented the environment from seeing g77 and I don't have gfortran, so
I'm SOL, apparently. I'm not particularly impressed with this. I don't
think requiring the GNU compilers on these platforms is a good move.
Just my EUR .02.
