Info request: Amber on 64-bit CPUs

Dear Amber users,

our group is using the AMBER software (v. 7), and recently we are going to buy
a 64-bit multiprocessor server. We narrowed down our considerations to
three architectures, but apart from performance we also take into
considerations the availability of the software.
Please, do you have any experience with the Amber's compilability on the following architectures:

Compaq Alpha EV7 (Tru64, OpenVMS or Linux)
IBM Power 4+ (IBM p650, AIX 5.2 system)
Intel Itanium 2 (SGI Altrix 3000, Red Hat 7.2 Linux system)

Also, as far as I know, there exists only one 64-bit compiler for Linux systems - Intel Compiler. But I know, that this compiler is still somewhat buggy. Does somebody of you have any experience with it?

Thanks in advance

Dan Svozil
