Pretty sure that error has been covered on this emailing list 
previously.  If I remember correctly it is due to having two:

[ defaults ]
; nbfunc        comb-rule       gen-pairs       fudgeLJ         fudgeQQ
         1       1               no              1.0             1.0

lines within your forcefield/topology files.  Check this to make sure by 
searching the emailing list archive.  Also look at line 9 of lipid.itp, 
that will most likely be the line that is a repeat of the one found in the 
ff*.itp files you have used.
