Hi Valentin,

  I've just successful ran Gromacs on our iMac G4 800MHz with OSX 10.1.5.
Compiled FFTw with "--host=powerpc --enable-float"
and Gromacs 3.1.4 with "--disable-shared --without-x".
I used the default cc (GCC 2.96) for both codes. Have to use /bin/bash to
configure Gromacs.
When you run grompp, have to modify /lib/cpp (for Linux) to simply
Ran villin benchmark which gave 2150 ps/day (< reported on Gromacs

Give "-disable-shared" a try.
Hope this is useful.
