Thanks for the report on parser.y.
This has already been fixed in the AmberTools repository which we plan
to sync with Dock in the next release.

If the installation of the utilities finished w/o error then sphgen 
should exist;  what is the output of
ls -l dock/bin/sphgen

Did you run the tests ?
An absent sphgen would cause some of the tests to fail.

You may just need to correctly update your path to include dock/bin
or use the full path as above, dock/bin/sphgen.

As far as i know, Chimera does not have a sphgen tool, 
so this tutorial is apt:
