Hello All

I'm attempting to compile gromacs (version 2.0) on a Beowulf built from
Alpha chips running Linux.  The compaq C/Fortran compilers are installed,
but when i go to build it, I get the following error:

	cc: info: /usr/include/gconv.h, line 171: In the declaration of "__data",
	zero cannot be used as an element count specifier.  The specifier will be
	ignored, (leaving the member/parameter with an incomplete array type) in
	this context. (zeroelements)
	__extension__ struct __gconv_step_data __data[0];

As a result of these errors which are throughout the compliling,
nothing gets compiled.

Am i missing some library call or something?
I did get Gromacs 2.0 running (and running well) on a single Alpha box
running linux using the compaq compilers, so i'm unsure of what is going
on here (although, that was a different chip, a different version of
linux, and a different version of the compilers....)

Another question,
I'd like to install Gromacs version 3,
but i don't think the system admins will want to change the lam version
for me, is there any way to complile with a (slightly) different
version than the one required by Gromaces 3?
how about getting around having those fast-fourier libraries installed?

Thanks for your time,
