I have had alot of success with clustal V
 (five) which can certainly cope with more than 16 sequences at a time.  It is
available by anonymous ftp from the major molecular biology ftp sites.  I would
go and find out the details of sitename and directory but I am a novice at UNIX
and rn and am pretty sure that I would not be able to get back to your message
again to reply!!

Good hunting
