AMBER: DIVCON optimization

I was checking the mail reflector and noticed that someone had asked
about wether divcon actually geometry optimized the molecule or just
calculated the charges. This is what I got out of it: it does
geometry optimize the molecule but the final output uses the input
coordinates. Did I understand this correctly?

Second, I have a molecule that does not want to geometry optimize in
divcon. I've pre-optimized the molecule in Spartan and am using that
pdb file to run into antechamber. Is there a way to ask divcon to skip
the geometry optimization and only assign charges, or would that not

Thank you,
