If I install from scratch, I remove all sorc and build dirs:

(cd ..; ./bootstrap)
rm -rf man src share include libtool admin config.* Makefile Doxyfile 
$HOME/GG/gromacs/configure --prefix=$DEST --enable-threads --with-x 
--x-includes=/usr/X11R6/include/X11 --x-libraries=/usr/X11R6/lib

make CFLAGS+=-g install

Then I get the error. Now interestingly, if I type make install once 
more, it compiles and installs fine.

It also works if I do


without install first.
