After getting the fftw pkgadd-style package from www.fftw.org, I installed
gromacs with ./configure CC=gcc (went fine, it seemed) and then make (no
problems there, either). However, for the 'make install' part, I got this
odd snag after it had been doing install-related things:

# ...
/bin/sh ../../config/mkinstalldirs /usr/local/gromacs/share/template
 /usr/local/bin/install -c -m 644 template.c
 /usr/local/bin/install -c -m 644 README
 /usr/local/bin/install -c -m 644 Makefile.sparc-sun-solaris2.8
make  install-data-hook
make[4]: Entering directory
(cd /usr/local/gromacs/share/template && ! (test -e Makefile) && ln -s
Makefile.sparc-sun-solaris2.8 Makefile ; exit 0)
/bin/sh: syntax error at line 1: `!' unexpected

make[1]: *** [install-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory

I'm not sure what caused the error, nor what other files I could provide to
shed some light on the subject. What do I do now?
