Mac OS has no /usr/lib64 at all, and OpenSolaris has /usr/lib/64.

When talking about the GMXRC, I realized another strange thing. When I
source the GMXRC in my bashrc, the $MANPATH variable is overwritten and
just the gromacs mans can be accessed via man. I circumvent this now by
saving the $MANPATH before I source GMXRC and appending it afterwards.
Am I doing something wrong or is there a small bug in the script.
