Dear Mark,

Thank you very much for your reply. Indeed, reading more about Fink I
can see several alternative.

For now I guess I got a good solution. I have a package called
'gromacs-all' which installs gromacs single and double and now I want
to make too with mpi, but first I need to solve a problem with openmpi
in my Fink here.
