We're attempting a serial Amber8 compilation on a single CPU G4 system with xlf90 (version 8.1) and the patched configure script (as described at This is being undertaken within csh, rather than OSX's default tcsh. The config.h file was successfully created, and environment variables for Amber8 and the compiler have been set using a .cshrc file in the home directory.
 The following error messages are generated, and we're just looking for a little help in interpreting the errors (Thanks very much!):
