Greetings Amber Community:
While attempting an installation of Amber8 on our Sun Blade-2500
running dual ultraSPARC-IIIi processors, I have so far run the
"./configure sparc" command, and then come to a halt following the
"make serial" command.
We are currently running the GNU compiler package, and I believe the
problem to lie somewhere in the "config.h" file or in the recognition
of the Fortran77 compiler. Here is a readout of the error:

grep: illegal option -- q
Usage: grep -hblcnsviw pattern file . . .
Starting installation of Amber8 (serial) at Tue Jan 18 11:10:50 EST
mkdir ../exe
mkdir: Failed to make directory "../exe"; File exists
*** Error code 2 (ignored)
cd lib; make install
/lib/cpp -P -I/usr/local/amber8/src/include new2oldparm.f >
f90 -c -O1 -o new2oldparm.o _new2oldparm.f
sh: f90: not found
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `new2oldparm.o'
Current working directory /usr/local/amber8/src/lib
*** Error code 1
make: Fatal error: Command failed for target `serial'

Any and all help is greatly appreciated, thank you!
