New Machine.sgi_mpi file

Dear amber users,

Several persons have reported problems building Amber7 on SGI machines
equipped with the newer MIPS R14000 processors. The problems are related
to the fact that the logic in the Machine.sgi_* files does not recognize
these processors.

I have cleaned up the Machine.sgi_mpi file removing references to very
old SGI equipment. This MACHINE file builds and runs Amber7 correctly on
SGI MIPS/IRIX systems.
You can download the new file from:

Other Machine.sgi_* files can be easily derived from this one.

An additional comment. This build does not use SGI's Scientific
Libraries (SCSL). Incorporating these libraries would require some
recoding of the calling interface for FFTs. It is my understanding that
this will be in place for the next major revision of Amber.
