There is a program at ftp.bio.indiana.edu in the molbio/mac directory
called trna.hqx.  You can download it via anonymous ftp or by gopher
(if you go by gopher it's in the IUBio-Software+Data/molbio/mac directory).
Note that there are two other files there - trnasearch-euk.hqx and
trnasearch-prok.hqx - they are just the two halves of trna.hqx.

I know that you want a DOS program - humor me for a minute :-)
The Mac version was actually derived from a PC program which you may
be able to get if you contact the author.  

The author of the DOS version is:

Randall Shortridge
Division of Biochem.
P.O. Box 13048
Science Research Bldg.
Denton, Texas 76203

Phone: (817) 565-2397 or 565-3537

Best of luck,
