#1239: __fitpack.h work array computations pretty much one big bug.

 There are no checks for overflows in the size computations and the use of
 npy_intp is suspect because of fortrans use of integer. Probably the thing
 to do here is compute a bound for the numbers going into the computations
 and check that it isn't exceeded.

 In practice the limits are probably of no concern because few are likely
 to use arrays big enough to matter. But is should be cleaned up at some
