No, I have other uses for 145M of bandwidth.

Compiling gromacs version 3.3 under recent versions of cygwin is painless.

1) Get source code for version 3.3 of gromacs
2) Get a recent cygwin installation
3) Open the cygwin bash shell or cygwin xterm, not the windows cmd shell 
or anything else similar
4) Unpack the source code
5) Change to the right directory
6) Issue "./configure" plus the options you want
7) When that works issue "make" and wait for that to work
8) "make install"
9) Start doing MD

Your earlier post with mentions of "C:\Cygwin\bin\cc.exe" clearly 
indicates that you are not using the cygwin build tools, as mentioned by 
Yang Ye. Don't attempt to use any other set of compilers/make 
tools/whatever until you
a) really know what you are doing,
b) don't have any plans for your spare time,
c) don't want it to work, and
d) hate yourself.
