Hi all,
I'm trying to install Amber8 on my institute system

As per the amber8 manual, i gave the commands
        ./configure -mpi


        make parallel

in /amber8/src.

The compilation went on for a while and stopped with the following error

make[2]: warning: Clock skew detected. Your build may be incomplete.

Did somebody have the same experience? Is this some sort of system memory
problem? Or do i have to modify one of the Makefiles? Or something else?
The system is SGI Itanium-2 based Altix 3700 server system with 28
processors and 224 GB main memory. The compiler is ifort version 8. Thanx
in advance.
