Yes. If the the amino acids are disjoint (e.g., you don't need both an
N-terminal GLY and and an incomplete GLY) you can edit the "addPdbResMap"
section from (a copy of) your leaprc file to specify what you want. You could
also just remove the addPdbResMap section, and specifically put the "N"
or "C" prefixes in your pdb file where appropriate.
