Not entirely, but probably the post you saw related to an LP atomtype, which
appears to be a special case.

grompp reads all the force field files and is finding something it doesn't like.
In 4.5.3, the proper capitalization should be "CMet," not "CMET," as it was in
old versions. Capitalization and other nomenclature has been standardized as of
version 4.5.3, so old files with outdated names cause errors.
