elf-strtab.c isn't a Gromacs file, and probably not mpicc either; from

need to upgrade to gcc3.
I haven't tried the Portland compilers in the last 1-2 years, but at
that time they did a lot of stupid stuff like claiming to be gcc
(defining _GNUC_) but they still didn't understand gnu-specific things
like inline assembly (which you of course check for with #ifdef
