Dear gmx-users,
When I parallel install gromacs-4.0.4 using my own usr. I encountered the 
problem. The following is my installation steps.
Step 1: install lam-7.1.4
          $ cd lam-7.1.4
          $ ./configure  --prefix=/home/xhy/software/lam-7.1.4 --without-fc 
          $ make
          $ make install
then adding /home/xhy/software/lam-7.1.4/bin into .bashrc file. 
          $ source .bashrc 
Step 2: install fftw-3.1.2
          $ cd fftw-3.1.2
          $ ./configure  --prefix=/home/xhy/software/fftw-3.1.2 
--enable-float  --enable-threads
          $ make
          $ make install
then  adding /home/xhy/software/fftw-3.1.2/bin,
                   export CPPFLAGS==-I/home/xhy/software/fftw-3.1.2/include 
                   export LDFLAGS=-L/home/xhy/software/fftw-3.1.2/lib into 
.bashrc file. 
          $ source .bashrc 
Step 3: install gromacs-4.0.4
           $ cd gromacs-4.0.4
           $./configure  --prefix=/home/xhy/software/gromacs-4.0.4 
--exec-prefix=/home/xhy/software/gromacs-4.0.4 --enable-mpi --with-fftw3 
then I encountered the following errors:
checking build system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking host system type... x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c
checking whether build environment is sane... yes
checking for a thread-safe mkdir -p... /bin/mkdir -p
checking for gawk... gawk
checking whether make sets $(MAKE)... yes
checking how to create a ustar tar archive... gnutar
checking for cc... cc
checking for C compiler default output file name... 
configure: error: C compiler cannot create executables
See `config.log' for more details.
Can you help me? I hope for your answer. Thank you very much!
