there is a jiffy named: pdb2occ, which will detect and setup
input cards for this situation. See:


There is a problem with the current version if you have residues with alternate
conformations that do not have the same number of atoms, so you should check the
output file of pdb2occ. See: http://www.globalphasing.com/buster/issues.html
This is fixed in the next patch-release.
