Dear Amber developers,

I am trying to install AmberTools1.5 on EL Capitan OS X 10.11. According to the guide provided by Jason Swails http://jswails.wikidot.com/mac-os-x , I installed gcc, g++, and gfortran (version 4.9). Using these settings, I am able to install AmberTools1.3 and AmberTools1.4 (without update) with no problems. However, errors appear via the AmberTools1.5 installation.

At the stage of configuration for building serial amber ( $ ./configure -macAccelerate gnu ), everything works fine. I got errors during building the serial AT15 ($ make install). They start with:

In file included from /Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin/../include/c++/v1/locale:182:

/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin/../include/c++/v1/__locale:70:20: error: use of undeclared identifier 'LC_COLLATE_MASK'

collate = LC_COLLATE_MASK,


/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin/../include/c++/v1/__locale:71:20: error: use of undeclared identifier 'LC_CTYPE_MASK'

ctype = LC_CTYPE_MASK,


/Applications/Xcode.app/Contents/Developer/Toolchains/XcodeDefault.xctoolchain/usr/bin/../include/c++/v1/__locale:72:20: error: use of undeclared identifier 'LC_MONETARY_MASK'

monetary = LC_MONETARY_MASK,


Then goes a long list of similar errors. At the end, I got the following:

fatal error: too many errors emitted, stopping now [-ferror-limit=]

20 errors generated.

error: command '/usr/bin/clang' failed with exit status 1

make[1]: *** [serial] Error 1

make: *** [install] Error 2
I would highly appreciate if you kindly help me to solve this problem.

Looking forward to hear from you.

Kind regards,
