Gromacs has limited capability in terms of constructing molecules in this way.
One possible method would be to place the monomer, with its principal axis along
x (editconf -princ) in a box of with correct dimensions such that images would
be spaced one bond length away (editconf -d as appropriate), then run genconf
-nbox 20 1 1. That's about the only Gromacs-centric way of building the
polymer. If that doesn't work, you'll likely have to use some other software to
