Amber 6 on parallel SUN

Dear Amber-Users,

I recently gained access to a 4-processor SUN (SunOS 5.6 Generic sparc
SUNW,Ultra-4). Are GIBBS and SANDER the only modules that have been
parallelized (I read something like this in the manual) ? Would other
modules, like SANDER_CLASSIC or NMODE, profit from running on such a
4-processor machine ?
Up to now, I've been using Amber on single-processor machine only, thus
I'd appreciate some advice for compilation on parallel machines (e.g.
which machine file to use etc.). Has somebody successfully compiled Amber
modules on a similar system ?

Best regards,
