[Rd] .Internal for functions in distn.R

the functions in distn.R were converted from .Internal to .External ([1], in 2012), and to .Call ([2], in 2014).
They are still listed as .Internal in names.c, although they are not used in that way.

Shouldn’t they be removed?
There’s quite some simplification to be had, e.g., do_math3 could go away and do_math2 would be simpler.

If that makes sense (I may be missing something?), I’d be happy to create a patch that does this.
