I have worked on a XML replacement for tpr files. In that case you would 
get all information that is in the top file, and you can probably use a 
fortran XML library to read such a file. It is not fully functional though.

And do you really need fortran?

there are many, since the top is processed in quite some detail. Look 
into grompp.c (function new_status).
