I got the following error message while compiling gromacs using a complete installation of Cygwin on 64bit windows 7. Any idea what the problem is?
This is what I have used to install as detailed on the gromacs website:

cd gromacs-4.6.1
mkdir build
cd build, cmake .. -DGMX_BUILD_OWN_FFTW=ON

the error occur at the last step 'make'

Thanks, Hua
