Because it's not a binary, but a source file that should be installed  
under the "prefix" tree together with an appropriate makefile  
(configured the same way gromacs was) - the point is that after  
installation the user should have access to template.c without keeping  
the entire gromacs source tree around!

Then I don't mind having another couple of simple examples in a  
separate contrib package too, of course ;-)
