We prove a Liouville-type theorem for entire solutions of the elliptic
system $-\Delta u = |v|^{q-2}v$, $-\Delta v=|u|^{p-2}u$ having finite
relative Morse index in the sense of Abbondandolo. Here, $p,q > 2$ and
$1/p+1/q> (N-2)/N$. In particular, this yields a result on a priori bounds
in $L^{\infty}\times L^{\infty}$ for solutions of superlinear elliptic
systems obtained by means of min-max theorems, for both Dirichlet and
Neumann boundary conditions.
