There is no difference.  g_editconf is just editconf but with a prefix.  Some 
Linux distributions (like Fedora) have Gromacs packages that have such 
nomenclature.  I believe the reason this was done was to avoid potential 
conflicts between the names of certain tools and other programs that may be 
installed on the system.
