The stuff from the tcl branch is outdated and will not be pursued further. 
Please use the Python branch from the github page.

First of all, did you build in an empty build directory (i.e., not the oone you 
used for the 3.3 code before)?
If not, please try that.

Otherwise, maybe the boost mpi library is not installed or was not detected.
On Ubuntu, e.g., you get it via
sudo apt-get install libboost-mpi-dev
If you have the boost-mpi package installed, please post the output of cmake 
(again, starting from an empty build dir).

We have (as part of our automatic testing) Docker build images and scripts for 
several Linux distros. Maybe also for yours

If that doesn't solve it, on what platform are you?
In many cases, it's best to get started on a Desktop machine or a laptop, where 
you can install software freely.
On a compute cluster, things tend to be a bit more involved.
On BwUniCluster, e.g., you have to compile your own version of boost.

With regards to minimize_energy:

            f_max=0, gamma=0.1, max_displacement=0.1)
        # Back to velocity Verlet

Hope that helps!
Regards, Rudolf
