This is the case only for the older pascal version.

Yes, with SunOS- the program has been completely rewritten in C, and
the new version of the package (called molphy) can be obtained by gopher.
or by anonymous ftp to sunmh.ism.ac.jp (18.104.22.168)
and look in /pub for the molphy files.
I also have a SunOS executable at the gopher site listed above.
I hope this helps,
