-gammafit- (SSC) is also to be attributed to Stephen Jenkins.

I think the short answer is that nothing is canned and public, but
existing code like -gammafit- would get you most of the way. Fitting a
more general distribution has the merit that it tells you something of
what ways the distribution departs from the specific case.
