We have not distributed pmemd.amoeba in a long time. The gem.pmemd code,
a successor to pmemd.amoeba, is the only part of Amber that carries out
calculations with the amoeba force field. This code is primarily aimed at
the "GEM" forcefield, but also supports AMOEBA, which is subset of GEM.

Those requiring faster AMOEBA codes might want to look at Tinker, and its
partnership with OpenMM: so far as I know, that is the only GPU-enabled code
that supports AMOEBA.
