Hi Michael,

Did you compile Grace on that box? Otherwise Grace might have been  
statically linked with lesstif...

The Gromacs configure script checks for motif headers and libraries  
(both are needed) during setup time, and writes a short message whether  
they are present or not. I'd make sure lesstif is installed, rerun  
configure and check the output.

Having said that, David has started to work on turning all programs  
into library calls - that way we will be able to write more  
feature-rich graphical user interfaces on all platforms...
