need ALU stripping program/ALU database

Does anyone know of a (UNIX/X) program that will strip ALU (et al.) out of
sequences before they are used for homology searches?  We are doing this 
crudely now using BLASTs against a local, small ALU database.  We'd like 
to do this automatically.

Also, is there a publicly-available ALU database out there that we can 
use to improve our local database?

Thanks in advance.
