Hi Andy,
It just occurred to me that the "align" command changed recently.  The 
link in my previous message goes to the man page for the latest and 
greatest, which allows you to specify two sets of atoms. The centroids 
of the sets are aligned. The older version of "align" (such as in the 
most recent production release, 1.2422) only allows two atoms rather 
than two sets of atoms to be used:

Currently the newer version of "align" is available in the August Linux 

and *untested* builds for other platforms
