Dear Amber helpdesk,

        I have a Indy running 5.3 and I am trying to install amber6 on it.
One problem is that
the computer on which I want to install it does not have a fortran
compiler. Therefore, I have made the amber directory read-writeable

        I link MACHINE to Machine.sgi and then run "make install."
Compilation never completes and ends with the following messages:

        ../..Compile L1 -DDPREC -P sysf
cat sys.f |lib/cpp -P -DDPREC -DIRIS -DISTAR2...
f77 -nocpp -mips2 -c -01 -0ld_rl -N1200 -Nn10000 _sys_.f
        ../../Compile CC erfcfun.c
cc -c -g -DIRIS -DISTAR2 -DREGNML ...
        ar r sys.a sys.o
ar: Error: malformed archive (at 60)

*** Error code 1 (bu21)
*** Error code 1 (bu21)
*** Error code 1 (bu21)

        Will amber 6 run on IRIX 5.3?
