Compilation of AMBER 6.0 on Origin 2000

Dear AMBER users,

I have come across an error in compiling AMBER v6.0 on a multiprocessor
Origin 2000 machine. In the .bashrc file I had declared:

set AMBERHOME=/home/mphilip/progs/amber/amber6
export PATH

Then in the amber6/src directory:

ln -s -f Machines/Machine.sgi MACHINE
make install

By this I was hoping to get the basic (serial) version of AMBER and then

recompile sander and gibbs linking to the Machine.sgi_mpi file.
The "basic" compilation went OK for the most part until I hit the point
just before the end of the "install" part of the /src/Makefile:

cd interface; ./install_ambint

At that point I got the error:
 AMBERHOME - Undefined variable
***Error code 1 (bu21)

Upon looking at the exe directory, I find that the executable
"interface" has been
produced just fine, and it is the most recently produced.

My questions are:
- Am I missing any more executables?
- Did I define the AMBERHOME variable correctly in the .bashrc file?

Thank you for any advice.
