This is pretty hard to grok. First, check what is in your TESTsander
environment variable, and/or unset it just to be sure.

Second, google on "Bad : modifier in $ (/)". I don't see any obvious answers
there, but you will probably be more persistent that I was.

Third, go the $AMBEHROME/test/cytosine directory, and try to run the test
case by hand, that is: create the file "", then run

../../exe/sander -O -i -c

Note that amber7 was released 8 years ago, and there have been three major
releases since then. Very few people on the list probably even have this code
anymore. But I don't recall having seen the problem you report.

...good luck...dac
