This is a bad sign. Configure should be here, as long as you are in

More bad news. is located in $AMBERHOME, but it appears
like nothing else is. Configure can't be found. The Python modules listed
above are being created because could not find them, but
they should already exist. As a result, will not be able to
download or apply the patches.

My suggestion: erase your whole amber12 directory, download a fresh copy of
AmberTools12.tar.bz2 from, and start over. If you still
have problems, report the *exact* commands you used as well as the error
messages. The information you gave here did not tell us how these files
could possibly be missing, so it's impossible for us to determine the
source of the problem.
