​Sort of. AmberTools contains the configure script, so you will still need
to download and extract AmberTools in order to install Amber. Once you run
configure, though, you can go to the $AMBERHOME/src directory and just type
"make install" to only compile variations of pmemd (e.g., pmemd,
pmemd.amoeba, pmemd.MPI, pmemd.cuda, etc.).
