Try doing a Makeclean 1st to purge intermediate files (.o, .a)
from an earlier compile.

The machine you are compiling on should be Indy-compatible,
of course. If it's another class of SGI, cross-compilation
is possible but may involve some trial and error deriving
an appropriate MACHINE file from Machine.sgi.

        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...
        BLAS1 -DMEM.ALLOC > sys.f
        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?
