In addition to those programs mentioned by Fabien, I think that Willie
Taylor's program SAP should calculate the RMSD (root mean square deviation)
between all pairs. Also SwissPDB viewer is very nice for visualising
distance between two or multiple protein sequences. In SwissPDB viewer the
amino acids in a protein structure can be coloured by distance to another
protein. This visualisation can be very useful if you are generating
protein models (and for presentations).

You may use some software that can superimpose two PDB files, such as
MAMMOTH, VEST or DALI. The programs will provide the coordinates and you
can then calculate their distances. But most of the programs only
superimpose a-carbon of the residue.
