Form the matrix of nutation.

   epsa        double         mean obliquity of date (Note 1)
   dpsi,deps   double         nutation (Note 2)

   rmatn       double[3][3]   nutation matrix (Note 3)


1) The supplied mean obliquity epsa, must be consistent with the
   precession-nutation models from which dpsi and deps were obtained.

2) The caller is responsible for providing the nutation components;
   they are in longitude and obliquity, in radians and are with
   respect to the equinox and ecliptic of date.

3) The matrix operates in the sense V(true) = rmatn * V(mean),
   where the p-vector V(true) is with respect to the true
   equatorial triad of date and the p-vector V(mean) is with
   respect to the mean equatorial triad of date.

   eraIr        initialize r-matrix to identity
   eraRx        rotate around X-axis
   eraRz        rotate around Z-axis
