That does not seem to be a MANPATH problem but rather a PATH problem:
searching for an unknown man page yields "No manual entry" rather than
"Command not found" -- the latter happens if the command "man" itself
is not found.

Did you compile Gromacs for yourself, or is it included with Mandriva?
If you compiled it for yourself, where did you install, i.e. what
--prefix did you give to configure?
