I already went ahead and put minimal documentation for the dalloc
routines in the programmer manual.  Should, I back those out?  If they
aren't going to stick around, we probably don't want people to use
them.  If there are similar memory routines for gmath, maybe we could
harmonize the bunch?  And, if svd.c is only used by m.svfit, and there
is/will be similar functionality in gmath, I don't see a good reason
for it being stuck in libgis.
