No, it is not available on the gromacs website yet. You can get the  
current parameter files from me if you'd like to try it out. I'm  
afraid the DPPC lipid in CHARMM is created by combining the PALM and  
PCGL residues and some patches so if you know how that works in CHARMM  
you might be able to create the DPPC residue.

As Justin is saying, CHARMM will be supported as of version 4.1. The  
source code is there in git master branch but you need to get the ff  
files from me.
