What is the nature of the "failure"? Is it just slight differences in the
charges (which, unfortunately, is to be expected, since mopac does not give
consistent results on various computer platforms)? Or is it something more
serious, such as assignment of different atom types, and so on?

We would need to get more details, such as the *.dif files, to be of much
help here.
