I think these are all irrelevant to your problem.

Amber requires a fortran 95 compiler; it will never begin to work with

My problem is that it's hard to remember everything you tried before and
why that didn't work. (Assuming you reported the parallel problems

If not, first try a bog-standard configuration like this:

configure_amber -lamsource gfortran

Run the ./configure_lam script as requested, then compile amber itself.
(Be sure to clean up any left over serial compiling results first.)
