If you want to do this using the vanilla GCG programs, you can also create a
custom enzyme file by simply copying the lines from GenRunData:Enzyme.Dat
describing the enzymes of interest to you into a new file.  Be sure to put a 
.. above the first entry (you can include any comments you like above the ..),
and then specify the new file using the /Data qualifier to any of the MAP*

For instance, here's a custom file I use frequently when designing ways to
subclone a piece of DNA.  It contains only those restriction enzymes with sites
in the polylinker or either pUC18/19 or pBlueScript.

  GCG enzyme data file for enzymes in polylinker of pUC18/19 or
  Stratagene pBlueScriptSK/KS
