Yes, you do have to account for ligand-ligand interactions and buried surfaces,
and I suspect that doing so won't be trivial. Probably lots of iterations of
g_sas will be required to cover all the necessary permutations of different
interfaces. g_cluster may help, but if you already know that the clusters form
it's just a matter of determining which molecules (by residue number) are
involved in each cluster so you can make appropriate index groups.
