Ok, if you have somebody using it without major issues I'd say it should
get included.

One thing about README.source; I think if you do something fancy with
the original tarball, it would be best to supply a "get-orig-source"
script for the modifications.

I take you based you packaging on "jgromacs_v1_src.tgz"?

I just renamed the "source" directory inside the jgromacs tarball to
"jgromacs-1.0" here so far, and it build fine.  

You wrote you removed jama, I think it is fine to keep it even if it is
not used in the build.  Unless we have to remove it due to some
licensing issues, which I guess is not the case?
