SPSS offers two other similar kinds of tests. All of these can be used as
omnibus tests, and as pairwise comparisons tests. None offer the ability to
compare one group vs. a combination of others. I've never seen any
multiplicity corrections other than general probability based ones, such as
Bonferroni or Sidak, which you'd have to implement "by hand" by using a
smaller critical alpha level.
