AMBER: plane angle.

Three points or 2 axis are needed to define a plane in Carnal.
I would like to calculate a plane angle but the planes contain more than 3 atoms.
How is it possible to create an "average" plane formed by more than 3 atoms?

For example if I study the interaction between 2 saccharides, how is it possible to create an "average" plane of a sugar rings and later calculate the plane angle?
Even if I use the group flag in carnal, the result is incorrect when I compare with the function "plane angle" in Sybyl.

Thanks for your help.
