records and nacmes

The gradients and nacmes can be stored in variables by
giving the directive VARSAV after the force command.
The gradients are then stored in variables GRADX, GRADY, GRADZ
for all atoms. See testjobs lif_nacme.test for an example!
Storing them in variables is not the default since there may 
be very many atoms and it was assumed that this is rarely needed.

Sorry that this is not documented. I'll add a note to the
documentation for 2001.1, which will be available soon.
