I don't know of any gcg programs called lalign, but there is a program lalign
in the fasta suite of programs (see W. R. Pearson and D. J. Lipman (1988),
"Improved Tools for Biological Sequence Analysis", PNAS 85:2444-2448, and 
W. R.  Pearson (1990) "Rapid and Sensitive Sequence Comparison with FASTP and 
FASTA" Methods in Enzymology 183:63-98). 

lalign produces a rigorous local sequence alignment, and displays the top x 
number of these. 

Hope this is some help,
