Did you installed packages from gnu-darwin or elsewhere that install gnu make? I had similar problems (not with gromacs but another software) after installing some packages (unfortunately I don't remember which ones) that installed an older version of make.
Try a
which make
to verify if you use the make in /usr/bin/make or another make in /usr/local/bin/make.
If you see that the make used is /usr/local/bin/make try instead of make to type /usr/bin/make
If this fix the problem than you can delete the make in /usr/local/bin

Good luck,
