* Spherical coordinates to direction cosines (double precision)
*
* Given:
* A,B d spherical coordinates in radians
* (RA,Dec), (long,lat) etc.
*
* Returned:
* V d(3) x,y,z unit vector
*
* The spherical coordinates are longitude (+ve anticlockwise looking
* from the +ve latitude pole) and latitude. The Cartesian coordinates
* are right handed, with the x axis at zero longitude and latitude, and
* the z axis at the +ve latitude pole.
