Hi Dac,

Good to know that absense of MKL will not affect Amber in most cases. So I
will stop trying MKL for now.
On the other hand, by adding -DFORCE_EXTERNAL_LIBS="mkl", the run_cmake can
not recongnize the installed MKL 2022, with relevant error as
"-- Could NOT find MKL (missing: MKL_INTERFACE_LIBRARY

The MKL I installed is the latest verion,

Best regards
