just updated my cvs checkout and started to build Gromacs.
I don't know if people are aware of this, or if it is intentional,
but the installation location has changed, and the build system
type is missing from the install path.

What I mean is that previously Gromacs installed in eg

whereas the current CVS version directly goes to


and creates bin and lib directories there. So the "i686-pc-linux-gnu"
part is missing.

>From my config.log it however seems that this is properly recognized:

configure:1573: checking build system type
configure:1591: result: i686-pc-linux-gnu

So don't know whether this behaviour was desired or not ?
Actually I don't think so, because the GMXRC.bash script would
be wrong then, as it explicitly contains references to the old

If I'd knew how to correct this I would, but auto* is still not
entirely clear to me .. so I'll leave it for the gurus ..


NB: for those of you who want to see my configure line, it is
./configure --prefix=/ibpc/matrix/opt/gmx/gmx-dev/ --without-x --program-suffix=_d --disable-float
