  One of the up and coming, actively developed and well documented bioinformatics c++ toolkits comes from the NCBI effort: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/IEB/ToolBox/CPP_DOC/ .  It provides a great framework to create cgi/fast cgi, web services, data serialization between asn.1/xml/ (it has automatic code generators from XML dtd and we are contributing XML schema conversion), GUI development, and of course, access to all of NCBI's ASN.1 data object definitions (which have been in use in the c toolkit for over 13 years).  There is support for structure manipulation via the MMDB API, which was originally written in C by Dr. Christopher Hogue, but is now wrapped by c++.  However, I don't think there is code to do the RMSD comparison, although you may be able to convince the developers to write you something... I can also suggest a variety of ways to do the RMSD comparison using Biostrucs.
