Dear Helios,

you may want to have a look at "pdbset" or "lsqkab" from CCP4
crystallography suite. Any crystallographer should be able to help with
CCP4 programs.
Most often one is interested in overlapping one molecule on top of
another - ptraj from Amber suite can do that but you need to generate an
amber topology (while CCP4 programs don't need one)...
