./converters/base64, Encode and decode base64 files

Branch: CURRENT, Version: 1.5, Package name: base64-1.5, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users

The MIME (Multipurpose Internet Mail Extensions) specification (RFC 1341
and successors) defines a mechanism for encoding arbitrary binary information
for transmission by electronic mail. Triplets of 8-bit octets are encoded as
groups of four characters, each representing 6 bits of the source 24 bits.
Only characters present in all variants of ASCII and EBCDIC are used, avoiding
incompatibilities in other forms of encoding such as uuencode/uudecode.

base64 is a command line utility which encodes and decodes files in this
format. It can be used within a pipeline as an encoding or decoding filter,
and is most commonly used in this manner as part of an automated mail
processing system.

Log message:
Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for converters category

Problems found with existing distfile:
	distfiles/libiconv-1.13-cp932.patch.gz
No changes made to the libiconv distinfo file.

Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden).  All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Log message:
Changes 1.5:
When encoding with FORCE_BINARY_IO mode in effect, the explicit "\r\n"
end of line sequence caused double carriage returns in the output,
because the output text file is subject to expansion of LF to CR/LF
line terminators.  I made the "eol" sequence conditional on
FORCE_BINARY, so that just a line feed is written to streams
which will expand it.

Log message:
Point MAINTAINER to pkgsrc-users@NetBSD.org in the case where no
developer is officially maintaining the package.

The rationale for changing this from "tech-pkg" to \ 
"pkgsrc-users" is
that it implies that any user can try to maintain the package (by
submitting patches to the mailing list).  Since the folks most likely
to care about the package are the folks that want to use it or are
already using it, this would leverage the energy of users who aren't
developers.
