You may want to try compiling as root, if you are going to compile to /usr/local/amber11

Here's what I do when compiling amber:
  sudo -E -s
You will now be root, and hopefully your environmental variables will be preserved; use plenty of caution.
Follow the remaining instructions regarding installation of AMBER.

When it comes time to run the tests, you may want to perform the following (as root):
  chown -R dean:staff /usr/local/amber11/test
Note: change dean to whatever your short username is.

Then when you go to run the tests, either exit the "root" session, or start a fresh terminal and change to the correct directory for performing the tests. It's a lot easier and safer to set up mpi as a normal user than to try to configure passwordless ssh as root.
