This is at odds with what you said earlier about being able to find 
gromacs under /usr/local. I surmise that actually you haven't managed to 
install gromacs correctly into a default location.

Please remove everything you've done so far and go to 
http://www.gromacs.org/gromacs/installation/configuration.html and start 
again following the instructions carefully. Note that the directory you 
install from can be anywhere that you can write to easily. Note that 
you'll need to change to root to do "make install" to the default 
location, but not for any other step. Once that's all completed 
successfully, you can use the find command to verify the location of 
GMXRC, edit .bash_profile accordingly, and then open a new shell and 
everything should work as intended.

There's some good general advice about this process here
