Dear Per,
     Sorry if I misunderstand your query.

 MacroModel should be able to calculate the analytical gradient (from the
 command line).
 If you take the .com file from an energy listing run and include the
  DLST    1
 Then run the job from the command line (not via the interface).
  The numerical and analytical first derivatives of the potential energy
 should be listed in the .log file.
