You have to make a user defined potential (using tables).
You can then use V=1/r^2 for the Coulomb if you so wish, but check your
units! People usually have this when r is in Angrstrom, so in the GROMACS
case you need a factor 10 somewhere. Check the file table6-12.xvg in the
top directory, that you have to modify, and then pass it to mdrun.
