Hi all

I am trying installing gromacs 4.5.1 in windows using cygwin .. I have fftw3
package also without any error.. but the moment I use ./configure command
given in the installation instruction I am getting the following error :-

Selva at selva-pc /fftw-3.2.2/gromacs-4.5.1
$ ./configure
checking build system type... config/config.guess: line 136:  4000 Aborted
           ( test -f /.attbin/uname ) > /dev/null 2>&1
config/config.guess: line 1308:  3184 Aborted                 ( umask 077 &&

configure: error: cannot guess build type; you must specify one

Selva at selva-pc /fftw-3.2.2/gromacs-4.5.1
$ ./configure --enable-shared LDFLAGS = '-L/usr/local/lib'
configure: WARNING: you should use --build, --host, --target
configure: error: invalid variable name: `'

Can anybody help me out in this regard ...
