I assume gcl supports displaced arrays since there weren't any
complaints about that.

I see 2 options: (1) write our own for gcl, (2) see if slatec really
needs support for displaced arrays.  Option 2 will, I think, force me
to modify f2cl not to use the array-displacement stuff when displaced
arrays aren't used.  Something I should do anyway, but will take time.
