Then probably configuration didn't actually work, if you have no Makefile.  A 
few things to consider:

1. Use the latest version of Gromacs (4.0.5), not a version that is nearly a 
year old.  You will get the latest features and bug fixes.
2. Ensure that you have read/write access in the directory you're trying to run 
the commands.
