You need to add a suffix rule to amber7/src/mm_pbsa/Makefile:

.c.o: $<
        ../Compile CC -D$(PREC) $<

(where there is a TAB character at the beginning of the second line.)

I will install this as a bugfix on the web site.

[You should also note: I don't think anybody I know of has used
Machine.sgi_mpich for a while. Do you not have access to SGI's MPI

...good luck...dac
