I have compiled amber6 on 4processor Sun (420R). I used MPICH, but
compiled mpich itself with -with-device=ch_shmem. I thought that would be
good, though it can probably be bettered. Presumably, with high
performance MPI tools from Sun, one can get better results. It is a
freeware/shareware, which I found infintely complicated to install. You
might be interested to check if it is available.
