The 'original' truncated octahedral box is handled
by carnal (amber7 and I suspect amber6). The 'ewald
truncated octahedral box' is not - amber7 carnal
prints a warning about this situation, to check
amber6, cd to src/carnal and 'grep -i oct *.c' to
see if there's a message in util.c. I'm not sure
which version of the box you'd be using, if it's
the ewald one, some programming would be required
to adapt carnal for it.
