Can you provide an example that fails?

It's not clear why you need to write .ac files, which are not really
intended as a general file format (and it would be good to get rid of
them). The parmchk program can use mol2 files as input, and you seem to
already have them. Of course, parmchk doesn't know about the sybyl
force field, so you do need to use antechamber to convert the atom

Which returns us to the original question -- what is going wrong with
Antechamber itself?
