[gmx-users] SGI installation problem

I'm not quite sure what David was thinking, but Makefiles are created  
on-the-fly with automake/autoconf and tailored to the commands on your  
system, so there is absolutely no way a Mac makefile will work on an  
SGI :-)

An error like

make: file 'Makefile' line 417: syntax error
*** Error code 1 (bu21)

typically means you've edited the makefile manually, or moved the  
source. Try a "make distclean" and start over from scratch with ./
