You are waiting because cpp is expecting input that is missing, namely
amoeba_parm.f90. The command should be:

/lib/cpp -P -DMASSLIB -DNMLEQ -DCLINK_PLAIN -DXLF90 amoeba_parm.f90 > amoeba_parm.f

It looks like $< is not being evaluated correctly.

amoeba_parm.o: amoeba_parm.f90
    $(FPP) $< > $*.f
    $(FC) -c $(FOPTFLAGS) $(FREEFORMAT_FLAG) -o $. $*.f

Note that config.h has a suffixes for .f90
I'll sleep on it; someone with access to an ibm may wake before me :)

You can fix this and the others like it by editing the Makefile:

amoeba_parm.o: amoeba_parm.f90
    $(FPP) $< > $*.f
    $(FC) -c $(FOPTFLAGS) $(FREEFORMAT_FLAG) -o $. $*.f


amoeba_parm.o: amoeba_parm.f90
    $(FPP) $*.f90 > $*.f
    $(FC) -c $(FOPTFLAGS) $(FREEFORMAT_FLAG) -o $. $*.f
