Build-essential is not in any sense a part of gromacs, this is only a
package containing everything you need to start working with gcc. I
don't know if it's called exactly build-essential on your fedora
system. On Debian-like systems it is:

Informational list of build-essential packages

If you do not plan to build Debian packages, you don't need this
package. Starting with dpkg (>= 1.14.18) this package is required for
building Debian packages.

This package contains an informational list of packages which are
considered essential for building Debian packages. This package also
depends on the packages on that list, to make it easy to have the
build-essential packages installed.

If you have this package installed, you only need to install whatever
a package specifies as its build-time dependencies to build the
package. Conversely, if you are determining what your package needs to
build-depend on, you can always leave out the packages this package
depends on.

This package is NOT the definition of what packages are
build-essential; the real definition is in the Debian Policy Manual.
This package contains merely an informational list, which is all most
people need. However, if this package and the manual disagree, the
manual is correct.

You need this package (or its analogue in fedora) installed to compile
any programme using gcc.
