Bug Description

Description:
Please backport lammps 0~20121116.git9eeec79-1~exp1 (universe) from raring to precise.

Reason for the backport:
========================
I would like to see a backported version of lammps, which is widely used for scientific simulation. Specifically, I would like to see lammp available in the LTS releases , Ubuntu 12.04 and Ubuntu 10.04

These releases will be more widely available, and is more stable to create virtual machine images based on LTS rather than on 12.10 and above.

Testing:
========
Mark off items in the checklist [X] as you test them, but please leave the checklist so that backporters can quickly evaluate the state of testing.

You can test-build the backport in your PPA with backportpackage:
$ backportpackage -u ppa:<lp username>/<ppa name> -s raring -d precise lammps

Backported package available here:
https://launchpad.net/~ginggs/+archive/backports

* precise:
[X] Package builds without modification
[X] lammps-doc installs cleanly
[ ] lammps installs cleanly and runs
