PRODRG is most useful in obtaining topologies for small molecules.  You might 
use it to get the initial topology for an unusual amino acid, but you would 
probably be best to translate that topology into an .rtp file for yourself.

Be aware that the charges and charge groups generated by PRODRG typically 
require refinement and thorough validation of the parameters.

Well, you could write your topology by hand, if you really wanted to :)  But 
pdb2gmx makes life quite simple for generating topologies of proteins and peptides.
