Amber10 relies on AmberTools, so you can't run it if the AmberTools
installation fails.

Dont do that! Only g77 or gfortran will work.

This looks(?) like some problem with ifort, which you should not be using
anyway. What was the error when using gfortran or g77? To be safe,
unset your MKL_HOME environment variable, in case there is some conflict

Well, of course...if the installation failed, you can be pretty sure that the
test cases will fail as well.

OK, it looks like the "make clean" script above removes things that are needed
for the bintraj test. If other things work, you can ignore this problem, or
run "configure_amber" again. (Generally, the idea is to run "make clean"
before a new compilation; it is not needed afterwards. But we should fix this

Please see p. 86 of the Users' Manual.

This is because your installation of AmberTools stopped in the middle (with
the error in the mopac compilation). So some executables were created and
others were not.
