It is easy to do this, albeit a little indirectly.
Using the PDB code grab the entry from Entrez
or BNL and follow the protein link.  This will give
you the SwissProt entry and the GenBank code for the
(c)DNA sequence is in the header.  If I remember
correctly BNL has this as a hot link while Entrez
lets you grab it through the "nucleotide neighbour".

Entrez is:

BNL is:

it may also be possible to do this through ExPASy
but I haven't tried this.

I hope that this helps,
