#30 rtcheck/g_lint duplication

Analysis (10)
Lee Butler

The tools rtcheck and g_lint have similar functionalities. The
rtcheck program functionality is mostly in g_lint. The only thing
missing seems (at first glance) to be the -M option that MGED uses
to pass view information to "rt" programs. If this could be added to
g_lint, we could have one (better, easier to maintain) code for doing
overlap checking and a host of other functions.

Since SAB is in the midst of formalizing a process for vetting
geometry, this would be an opportune time to condense this work

g_lint should be enhanced so that it can produce both the ascii and
plot variants of output at the same time. Ugh. Make that: change
the man page so it makes sense. It acutally still reports the
overlaps in ascii still, but the plot file goes to stdout.

We should update MGED to call g_lint with the right flags instead of
rtcheck when the user give the "rtcheck" command.
