I have changed the emil build scripts. I added a custom Makefile, and it
conforms now to the rest of Amber (except for MTK++ and the 3rd-party tools
that still need to be configured).

It appears to work, but only builds the static library. Based on the
EMILLIB variable set in the config.h file by configure2, though, that
appears to be the one used in the sander and pmemd builds.

I'm still working with this a little bit, but it appears to be a bit more
stable now.

All the best,
