Checking given RT-PCR primers against Genbank

Hello all,

we are looking for a way to check a given set of RT-PCR primers against
Genbank or subsets of Genbank.
The idea would be to have a program check for sequences which might give
rise to product - i.e. looking for sequences where a set of primers
could hybridize in a distance of ~1-3kB max.
We are aware of all the programs that will try to design primer pairs
based on a target sequence, and there's also programs which will check
for mispriming in a given target sequence.
I would appreciate any comments ...
