Dear Mark,
If "--disable-threads ", how it will influence the function of GROMACS?
Secondly, for the webpage you introduced to me "http://www.gromacs.org/Downloads/Installation_Instructions/Cygwin_HOWTO", "Edit your login files to source /usr/local/gromacs/bin/GMXRC (or manually add /usr/local/gromacs/man to the MANPATH and check that /usr/local/bin is in the PATH)" is a little difficult to me. What is "GMXRC"? What is the login files? How to find the MANPATH? How do I know whther  /usr/local/bin is in the PATH is in the path? How can source /usr/local/gromacs/bin/GMXRC?
I am looking forward to getting a reply from you.

The actual error occurred further up, so we cannot give specific help. Be sure you are following the instructions here http://www.gromacs.org/Downloads/Installation_Instructions/Cygwin_HOWTO, in particular --disable-threads.
