Dear all,

I try to compile the parallel version of Amber 10 with fortran g95
compiler and -lamsource flag but I got the following error messages
(my experience in compiling stuff is low).
The serial version compiled OK and the tests were successfull.
The platform is x86_64 and the gcc ver. is 4.3.2
It seems a C++ related error.
