I encourage you to post your gcc results to the list. I don't have a license
to current AMBER s/w except AmberTools, so cannot test things. People may
want/need to know about required hoops for jumping through.


PS, Jason, do you still keep a page for AMBER on Mac? We MAY need to update
that for 10.8.x or 10.9.x
More testing is needed to know for sure.
