In addition to what Justin has said there are parameters for GTP to use
with the amber forcefields, see:
Obviously you need to convert these from an amber format to a gromacs one.
Do note that an additional atom type for the terminal anionic oxygens is
needed so the conversion using the contributed tools may not be straight
