There are several programs around for doing this (See work by Taylor and Orengo,
or Sali and Blundell for example).

Our own package "STAMP" is available - see the instructions on our anonymous ftp
site (geoff.biop.ox.ac.uk).  STAMP can align multiple structures and has many
useful utilities for manipulating proteins of similar structure.
