Finding matches to consensus sequences

I am looking for a program that would identify approximate matches to
a published short consensus sequence, such as a ribosome binding site,
within a larger sequence.  Since this must be a common problem, I
suspect I am missing something obvious.  The only thing I could find
in UWGCG is a program that creates its own consensus sequence from a
database; I have also come across a program that finds exact matches.

The ideal would be a programme that estimates the probability of the
match occurring by chance.

Thanks in advance for information anyone can provide.
