The line there is an example, showing you how to compile with g95. Right
after that, the readme says (roughly) type "./configure --help" to see other

No: Amber's configure script is not the same as that for other programs.
Please use the --help option of configure to see how to use it for other
compilers. Be sure to also follow the advice to "..examine (and edit) the
config.h file at this point.)

Don't be afraid to experiment! If you had actually tried what you suggest
above, you would have automatically gotten the "usage" information for
configure (since it would not have recognized your syntax). Then you would
not have had to send a question to the list.
