I seem to remember seeing or hearing of a SAS presentation on Proc Power. Have you checked the SI website and Lex Jansen's collection of papers?

I am not aware of any software (which does not mean the isn't some), but if you have some estimate of the Design Effect for main analyses of interest (say from similar surveys or previous work), you may get a reasonable sample size estimate by running PROC POWER and multiplying the estimated sample size by the design effect.
