K-modes clustering was originally developed by 
Anil Chaturvedi, Paul Green and me in 1994, but, 
for various reasons, not published until 
2001.  K-modes indeed is the optimal procedure to 
use for the problem of clustering categorical 
data you describe.  The reference for our paper is:

Chaturvedi, A.D.,  Green, P.E. & Carroll, J.D. 
(2001).  K-modes clustering.  Journal of Classification, 18, 35-56.
