It's not quite clear (to me!) what the real status of gcc 4.6.1 is (my version
says "prerelease", but macports may be slow in updates). In any event, this
version is much stricter about C++ compliance, and does more error checking
in the gfortran stage, than earlier releases. It will break many codes,
including Amber.

We will try to get bugfixes posted soon, certainly for the most recent
versions of the code. In the meantime, you can fix things yourself, or
retreat to an earlier version of the gnu compiler suite.
