free energy of binding

How could free energy of binding of a small-molecule ligand to a
protein receptor be calculated from namd md trajectories?
Is there a validated specific procedure for namd, or should a
literature method be imitated? For example Åqvist's method:

Åqvist, J., Medina, C., and Samuelsson, J. E. (1994) A new
method for predicting binding affinity in computer-aided drug design.
Protein Eng. 7, 385–391.

thanks for sharing experience on this hot topic
