Yes... Vladimir appears to be confusing doing the build from 
/home/vladimir/gmx331 with the destination for that build... which is 
under /usr/local unless you actually specific differently to configure.

Vladimir, somewhere there are instructions about including "sourcing" 
GMXRC in your .bashrc or .cshrc files. Until you've done this, the 
gromacs binaries won't be on your PATH. The good thing about using 
configure, is that GMXRC will point to the right things irrespective of 
the inputs to configure... this beats doing it by hand when you go to 
change things later on!
