Just wondering if anybody had any ideas for me on this? Maybe there's a compiler directive or option I can give to work around it? Thanks

Subject: RE: Install VMD from source on Amazon EC2 instance

I get this error when I try to 'make' vmd-1.9.4a51. This is on a Amazon Linux2 EC2 instance, and they seem to be saying I can't download something like glibc6-devel.i686 or whatever it is to give me the 32-bit build dependencies- they don't provide those RPMs. I want to try to build from source because I want to compile MPI in. Under the circumstances, what are my options? Thanks.
