I had the same problem long time ago.
The only conflict was with the functions getmaxx and getmaxy of the bgi 
subsystem, which you do not use.
So either compile grx without bgi support (there is an option in makedefs.grx)
or apply the attached patch to grx248s which solves more cleanly the problem by 
repacing getmaxx, getmaxy by getmaxX, getmaxY in grx/bgi (at the C and linker 
levels, pascal is case insensitive).
You can then compile everything cleanly as usual with automake.
