If you rename your prototype of GJFullPivotInvert to GJFullPivotInvertD, you'll
get the warning on both... :)

double **ar != double ar[][].  Use the latter, and the warnings will stop,
except for the second arg in GJFullPivotInvertD().

const double ar[][] isn't a constant pointer, it's a pointer to a
multidimensional array of "const doubles".
