Use "which grompp" and/or "echo $PATH" just before they execute to be 
sure which version you're getting.

It sounds like some kind of dynamic linking issue. Perhaps 
LD_LIBRARY_PATH or LD_RUN_PATH needs to be configured differently.

Talk to your system admins - this issue will very likely not be specific
