CIP X,Y given Fukushima-Williams bias-precession-nutation angles.

   gamb     double    F-W angle gamma_bar (radians)
   phib     double    F-W angle phi_bar (radians)
   psi      double    F-W angle psi (radians)
   eps      double    F-W angle epsilon (radians)

   x,y      double    CIP unit vector X,Y


1) Naming the following points:

         e = J2000.0 ecliptic pole,
         p = GCRS pole
         E = ecliptic pole of date,
   and   P = CIP,

   the four Fukushima-Williams angles are as follows:

      gamb = gamma = epE
      phib = phi = pE
      psi = psi = pEP
      eps = epsilon = EP

2) The matrix representing the combined effects of frame bias,
   precession and nutation is:

      NxPxB = R_1(-epsA).R_3(-psi).R_1(phib).R_3(gamb)

   The returned values x,y are elements [2][0] and [2][1] of the
   matrix.  Near J2000.0, they are essentially angles in radians.
