OK. That's because the identification has changed from rs6000 to 
powerpc. I really don't know why since Power3 is a power parallel 
processor and not powerpc, but I've changed the configuration scripts to 
accept either and still find the best flags.

If you want to test it, you can find an updated package at 
ftp://ftp.gromacs.org/pub/patches, but I don't think it will solve the 
other problems since it compiles ok when you provide CFLAGS/FFLAGS.
