Thanks, Mickey.  At first I thought this was no use because it would
only give me apomorphies for the first of my many MPTs; but then I
realised I could save and re-load the majority-rule tree instead:

        contree all/outroot=paraphyl strict=no semistrict=no majrule=yes 
adams=no treefile=majrule.tre replace=yes;
        gettrees file=majrule.tre
        describetrees 1/apolist = yes

Which gives me exactly what I want.

Many thanks.
