  It's best avoided rather than searched for. Consider whether your box  size is suitable for your coordinates. Construct a simpler version that  is easier to check by hand.

VMD is a good tool for seeking steric clashes, because its bond-creating  heuristics when you load in a .gro file will normally indicate where  atoms are too close together. From VMD's Tk console you can use "pbc  box" to view the box wrt the coordinates.
