Installing NAMD

A NAMD binary distribution need only be untarred or unzipped and can be run directly in the resulting directory. When building from source code, ``make release'' will generate a self-contained directory and .tar.gz or .zip archive that can be moved to the desired installation location. CUDA and HIP builds include .so files that must be in the dynamics library path.
