What you want are LSSR "target" restraints that are designed for exactly 
this case. Please see:

(A) Paper on it:
http://dx.doi.org/10.1107%2FS0907444911056058 (open access)

(B) A tutorial explaining how to use it:

(C) the documentation

Hope this helps please email this list or buster-develop for anything 
unclear or further advice.
