Thank you for the response.  That seems to be the case.  If I were to
re-install Gromacs again, what should I do so that the installation directory
and hence source files are not cleaned away?  Last time I followed the
instructions from the post: [gmx-users] HOWTO for installing non-MPI
gromacs-3.3.1 on cygwin.
What additional would I need to do to keep the source files?

Thank you,
