I know this is question that mainly reflects by ignorance, but is "Athlon 64
running FC4" a 64-bit OS (where pointers are 64-bit). xleap is probably
broken on such a platform. See the comments in $AMBERHOME/src/Makefile
on how to compile for tleap only (which seems to be 64-bit clean).

If any amber users know the answers to the following questions, please post

1. Has anyone gotten xleap to run in 64-bit mode? How?

2. Are there compile/load options that can force a 32-bit build?

3. If you take an xLeap executable from an IA-32 machine, and try to run it
on a 64-bit machine, will it work?

4. Has anyone used gcc 4 to compiler xaLeap on a 32-bit system?

5. Has anyone every seriously looked a compiler warnings like those cited
above, and thought about whether things could be fixed?
