You're probably not in a source directory.

As you mentioned - you need an mpi-enabled version (linked vs your
installed MPI library).

If you're unexperienced in compiling, check first if there are binary
packages (with mpi) for OS X.

If not, here the roughly sketched steps:
- obtain the source (tar.gz or checkout via cvs)
- ./bootstrap (only when cvs version used)
- Configure via ./configure. The interesting options for you migth be:
		--enable-mpi --program-suffix="_mpi"
- make mdrun
- make install (as superuser or specify a prefix for user installation
in ./configure)

The gromacs website and wiki contains more information about the steps.

Good luck
