There are several others ....

PIMA - pattern induced multiple sequence alignment
     - version 1.40, written in C, compiles fine

Predator - structural prediction based on multiple alignments
         - version 1.0, written in C, compiles fine

ClustalW - pairwise and multiple alignments

I'm sure you already have references for other common packages such
as Don Gilbert's sequence conversion utility - readseq, GDE, NCBI blast
etc. etc.
