Following is a response from DHS staff member, Tom Pullum:

The analysis team at DHS uses Stata. Stata includes a command "lorenz", with options for a figure and for calculating the Gini coefficient.

Actually I'm not sure whether lorenz is built in or I had to install it. If you open Stata and enter "help lorenz" you will either see that it is included, or will see that you need to do a free download to install it.

Other packages probably include something similar but we can't help with them.
