Thanks very much for your detailed instructions. We will be preparing an
updated FAQ on these issues soon.

I would just add one additional point for general users. After going to all
this effort, it is in most cases worthwhile to go ahead and compile and test
pmemd as well. Go to $AMBERHOME/src/pmemd and follow the instructions there.
You can test the installation by doing "make test.pmemd" in $AMBERHOME/test.

Thanks again for your contribution....regards....dac
