Curiously enough, the error message:

means that your .top file is defining the DPC molecule more than once.

That's probably fine, but either that file is being #included more than 
once, or you are #including two files that do that, or similar. Look 
carefully for that. If you get desperate, use "cpp -I$GMXLIB file.top 
file_after_cpp.top" (which is effectively what grompp is doing) and 
search for DPC.
