AMBER: Amber 7 Compiling Problem

My thanks to everyone who responded to my request for help in compiling
Amber 7, initially with the Intel Fortan Compiler v8.

I've chickened out and reverted to the g77 compiler (gcc version 3.4.0
on my SuSE 9.0 partition)

After applying the patch in bugfix 45 for version 8, I've actually
gotten part way through leap. In fact, if I comment out the three lines
in the makefile that pertain to leap I get the compilation finished

The error message that I get now is:

gcc -m32 -g -DMEMORY_DEBUG=0 -I.. -w -I/usr/X11R6/include
-Dlinux -D__i386__ -D_POSIX_C_SOURCE=199309L -D_POSIX_SOURCE
-DFUNCPROTO=15 -DNARROWPROTO -c -o variables.o variables.c
bison -y parser.y
parser.y:162.9: parse error, unexpected ":", expecting ";" or "|"
make[3]: *** [parser.c] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/computation/amber7/src/leap/src/leap'
make[2]: *** [all] Error 2
make[2]: Leaving directory `/home/computation/amber7/src/leap'
make[1]: *** [World] Error 2
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/computation/amber7/src/leap'
make: *** [install] Error 2

As I am clueless, help is, once again, requested.

Thanks in advance.
