I've no idea if that works, but it's straightforward to make a dummy 
install location and use configure --prefix=/that/dummy/location and see 
what gets put there.

Fair enough. How about listing gromacs-single and gromacs-double in the 
other's Conflicts and Replaces fink fields? 
That might just work and have no problems.

Also, I suggest making a bugzilla with your fink scripts attached when 
you have them working, since they may as well get put in the GROMACS 
admin subdirectory for future use.
