The fstspk program was a cookbook (example) removed from the NAIF 
Toolkit after toolkit delivery N53. fstspk used low level SPK routines 
to perform state evaluations. NAIF recommends use of SPKEZR to perform 
state look-ups. The current cookbook program 'states' (states.pgm in 
toolkit/src/cookbook) demonstrates use of SPKEZR.
