Indeed, it is essential that mpi be compiled with the same compilers as you want to use for Amber. My recommendation is to use the configure_mpich2 (or configure_openmpi) scripts in $AMBERHOME/Ambertools/src. This will ensure that you have the correct compiler and other settings. Be sure to set MPI_HOME to $AMBERHOME, and have $AMBERHOME/bin in your PATH.
