Hi all,

I am trying to install Gromacs 3.3.2 on the new Leopard Mac OSX. the  
OSX was installed anew, and not from an upgrade. Developer tools were  
installed too.

I have already compiled and installed lam-7.0.6 and fftw-3.0.1 (single  
and double precision) without a problem.
The configure parameters were:

for lam: ./configure --with-fc=/usr/local/bin/gfortran
for fftw (single): ./configure --enable-float --enable-threads -- 
for fftw (double): ./configure --enable-threads --enable-sse2

For gromacs, the configuration is:  ./configure --enable-mpi
when I type make, compilation begins and end with the following lines:

mpicc -I/sw/include -framework Accelerate -o grompp topio.o toppush.o  
topcat.o topshake.o convparm.o tomorse.o sorting.o splitter.o  
vsite_parm.o readir.o add_par.o topexcl.o toputil.o topdirs.o grompp.o  
compute_io.o  -L/usr/local/lib ../mdlib/.libs/libmd_mpi.a -L/usr/X11/ 
lib -L/sw/lib ../gmxlib/.libs/libgmx_mpi.a /usr/local/lib/libfftw3f.a - 
lm /usr/X11/lib/libSM.6.0.0.dylib /usr/X11/lib/libICE.6.3.0.dylib /usr/ 
X11/lib/libX11.6.2.0.dylib /usr/X11/lib/libXau.6.0.0.dylib /usr/X11/ 
ld: in ../gmxlib/.libs/libgmx_mpi.a(nb_kernel204_ia32_sse.o), in  
section __TEXT,__text reloc 1: bad pc-rel vanilla relocation length

collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
make[3]: *** [grompp] Error 1
make[2]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[1]: *** [all] Error 2
make: *** [all-recursive] Error 1

attached below is configure output for Gromacs.

Has anyone else encountered this problem or has any idea how to deal  
with it ?

Thanks in advance,

Hadas Leonov.
