AMBER: Compiling just sander

Dear All,

I have a quick question, which I could not find an answer in the amber
mailing list. I want to compile just sander. I am doing the following:
I copy the sander directory to my home directory as follows;

# cp -R $AMBERHOME/src/sander ~/sander

Then, I try to compile sander as follows:

# cd ~/sander
# make sander

Everything looks to be fine, but at the end I am getting the following

ifort -c -w95 -tpp7 -mp1 -O0 -FR -o prn_dipoles.o _prn_dipoles.f
cd ../lib; make sys.a
/bin/sh: line 1: cd: ../lib: No such file or directory
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/yildirim/deneme/sander'
make[1]: *** No rule to make target `sys.a'. Stop.
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/yildirim/deneme/sander'
make: *** [syslib] Error 2

Then, I have copied all of the original $AMBERHOME directory to my home
directory ~/amber8 and deleted all the files in $AMBERHOME/exe directory.
Then I am doing the following:

# make clean

while I was in $AMBERHOME/src directory. Then, when I did the following

# cd $AMBERHOME/src/sander
# setenv AMBERHOME ~/amber8
# make sander

it compiled the sander.

My question is as follows: Do I have to copy all of the amber8 files into
one directory, and then compile just the programs I want, like sander? Or
is there another way to just compile sander (or even leap, etc.)? Thanks
in advance.
