I do not know which is the best, but I can email you CSR, which works
for any pair of molecules, i.e. the atomic numbering is not important.
The criterion is the number of atoms in the common 3D motif.

Just specify for which platform (SGI, RS6000, CRAY, LINUX, DEC-alpha)
and system version.

Note that I take 3 weeks holidays from tomorrow, and that the freeware
will be probably sent at the end of July.
