In GSL 1.12, the gsl_matrix_free(), gsl_vector_free(), and gsl_block_free() 
functions were modified to accept NULL arguments (bug #25319, revision 4556).  
The associated documentation (doc/vectors.texi) has not been updated to 
reflect these changes.  For example, the documentation for gsl_vector_free() 
(Section 8.3.1, Vector allocation) says,

  "The vector v must be a valid vector object (a null pointer is not

Similar wording exists for gsl_matrix_free() and gsl_block_free().

I think these statements need to be removed.
