IS routines without a Fortran interface

    The difficulty with this routine is that it returns an array (the procs 
and numprocs argument) and an array of arrays (2d array) as the last argument.
Returning 2d arrays from C to Fortran is not doable.

   Thus I have devised a slightly different calling sequence for Fortran;
     Fortran Usage: 
$        ISLocalToGlobalMpngGetInfoSize(ISLocalToGlobalMapping,PetscInt nproc,PetscInt numprocmax,ierr) followed by 
$        ISLocalToGlobalMappingGetInfo(ISLocalToGlobalMapping,PetscInt nproc, PetscInt procs[nproc],PetscInt numprocs[nproc],
           PetscInt indices[nproc][numprocmax],ierr)
         There is no ISLocalToGlobalMappingRestoreInfo() in Fortran. You must make sure that procs[], numprocs[] and
         indices[][] are large enough arrays, either by allocating them dynamically or defining static ones large enough.

   Attached is the new code, just drop it into src/vec/is/utisl/ftn-custom to replace the 
current zisltogf.c and run "make lib shared" in that directory.

   Please let us know if you have any difficulties with it,
