AMBER: problems installing amber 7 on a RH Linux 8 machine

Dear all

 We are trying to install amber 7 on one of our machines using the
 configuration file Machines.ifc. We have the Intel fortran compiler
 installed on that machine, but when we run "make install" we get a fatal
 error "ld: cannot find -lPEPCF90". Removing (commenting out) the line
containing the -lPEPCF90 variable in the MACHINE file does not solve the
problem, it just makes LOADLIB an undefined variable.............

 Can Amber 7 be installed using ifc (ifort) v8.1, on a RH Linux 8 machine?

 Best regards
