It is not trivial to combine GB with frozen atoms, and the code has never
been incorporated into Amber. The issues involved are discussed in:

%A O. Guvench
%A J. Weiser
%A P. Shenkin
%A I. Kolossvary
%A W.C. Still
%T Application of the Frozen Atom Approximation to the GB/SA Continuum Model
for Solvation Free Energy
%J J. Computat. Chem.
%V 23
%P 214-221
%D 2002

Use ntr=1, not ibelly=1.
