To set the amino-acid replacement model equal to one of the available profile mixtures, use the "-c20", "-c30", ... "-c50" options. For instance :
    ./phyml -d aa -m C20 -i dataset -c 4 -b 0 -s SPR
here, you combine the C20 model (profile mixture with 20 categories) with a discretised gamma distribution (4 bins), and using the SPR heuristic search algorithm.
