[gmx-developers] compiling GROMACS and SCALASCA

I am trying to compile GROMACS along with SCALASCA. I compile
C programs with scalasca using the command:

 /software/bin/scalasca -instrument /software/intel/icc program.c

Following that idea, I tried to use the CC/C++ environmental variables as
 -DCMAKE_C_COMPILER=/software/bin/scalasca -instrument /software/intel/icc
-DCMAKE_CXX_COMPILER=/software/bin/scalasca -instrument

However, it seems that cmake interprets that the compiler is
just /software/bin/scalasca and not the entire line:
/software/bin/scalasca -instrument /software/intel/icc  (the same happens
with c++)

or maybe the line is too long.

Do you know if this is the proper way to install GROMACS with SCALASCA
enabled? Or maybe there is something better?

Any suggestion on how to include SCALASCA path into the compiler path?

Here is the complete instruction I am using together with the output.
The GROMACS version I am trying is 5.0.

Note:  without the SCALASCA path, both icc and icpc compilers are well
recognized by cmake and I am able to install GROMACS.
