Francesco: please don't be snippy. You did not give any information about
your machine, like most computational scientists would tell you. I think
you would find useful posts on this subject in the VMD and LAMMPS mailing

The PLUMED patch (as its documentation says) is applied to the source code
before compilation, and doesn't affect the NAMD Makefiles.

Just apply the patch, and compile the patched NAMD as you would the vanilla

Still in doubt but unwilling to provide details? Try the first compilation
option that will succeed, and run some test calculations on the damn thing.
