Not at all -- nauty is designed for isomorphism rejection and 
automorphism group computation.

Since the max clique problem is NP-complete, you won't find programs
that work on all graphs of "arbitrary sizes".  If your graphs are
really big and maybe dense, you will have a problem. You should maybe mail
to DMANET asking for programs with a more precise description of
the graphs you want to test.
