Good thinking - we've already updated these files in the 3.1.5_pre1

This is a bug in Apple's version of gcc that I have reported (and they

ftp.gromacs.org/pub/beta, or just remove the contents of the routine
set_non_java_mode() - setting this flag only improves performance by a
percent or so anyway.
