I've not seen this error before. Can you look at the entire make log to
look for anything else related to packmol_memgen? (Run "make install >
make.log" if you don't have a log file.)

As a workaround, while this problem is being investigated, you could comment
out the lines related to packmol_memgen in AmberTools/src/Makefile.
(I'm assuming, based on the fact that this is Amber18, that you are still
using the configure script, and not cmake). This should get
you going if packmol_memgen is the only problem.

...good luck....dac
