Hi Peter,

Unless you post the exact error messages it's hard to suggest anything.

Gromacs compiles just fine on a properly setup SGI system, but a lot of 
SGI boxes
are not properly configured for their new/old binary formats.

Don't know anything about that; those binaries are contributed by users, 
but you might
have to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
