I don't think there is such a command -- you would have to adjust the
size by trial and error to get a certain number of molecules.

Note that there already is such a beast --
$AMBERHOME/dat/leap/lib/tip4pew And, the way in which leap
uses such a unit makes it relatively unimportant how may water molecles
there are -- leap just replicates the box periodically as needed.
