Bionet has changed some since 1988.  At that time, Bionet was
hosted at Intelligenetics as part of their Genbank contract,
and they included a software archive. The meaning you have
for Bionet is the biology Usenet newsgroups, but the software
archives also survive.

I did make a copy of the Intelligenetics public software archive, 
most of which is still available at  IUBio Archive
ftp://iubio.bio.indiana.edu/molbio/
http://iubio.bio.indiana.edu/soft/molbio/

As part of its long running career, Bionet newsgroups have also
migrated to IUBio Archive (iubio.bio.indiana.edu = www. or net.bio.net now)

I wasn't able to find an original align.c from Miller and Myer 
here, but Bill Pearson's FastA file set includes a version
that will probably suit you.  See

"ALIGN"
optimal global alignment of two sequences with no short-cuts.
This program is a slightly modified version of one taken from E.
Myers and W. Miller. The algorithm is described in E. Myers and W.
Miller, "Optimal Alignments in Linear Space" (CABIOS (1988) 4:11-17).
/*      align.c
        protein driver for linear sequence comparison method
*/
char *refstr="Please cite: Myers and Miller, CABIOS (1989) 4:11-17";

from ftp://ftp.virginia.edu/pub/fasta/
in fasta21u1d0.shar.Z and later archive files

or from ftp://ftp.bio.net/molbio/search/fasta/ -- same software as above
