Log message:
There was some confusion over the download site; while the software's
homepage links to homepage-relative copies, the announcement e-mail
mentioned the GNU mirror network. This was noticed after reports about
spurious 403 errors came it. Changed to use MASTER_SITES_GNU.

Log message:
Update to mtools-4.0.18.

Improvements since the 4.0.17 release are:

        Fix for names of iconv encodings on AIX
        Fix mt_size_t on NetBSD
        Fixed compilation on Mingw
        Fixed doc (especially mformat)
        Fix mformat'ing of FAT12 filesystems with huge cluster sizes
        Minfo prints image file name in mformat command line if an image
        file name was given
        Always generate gzip-compressed RPMs, in order to remain
        compatible with older distributions
        Fixed buffer overflow with drive letter in mclasserase

Log message:
mtools-(at least)4.0.17 tries hard to configure and conditionally set types
to use 64bit file offsets where available for seek()ing etc. However, the
easy case (sizeof(off_t)>4) is handled incorrectly: mt_size_t is set to
size_t - maybe a copy and paste from the fall-back-to-32bit case.

This type is used at least in init.c, when detecting media size and comparing
to the FAT geometry, consequently failing and erroring out with the message
"Big disks not supported on this architecture."

The patch does handle the (e.g. NetBSD) case of 64bit off_t the same as
the case where a off64_t is available (and the other 64bit off_t-equivalent
cases); namely using off_t as mt_size_t.

Thanks to riastradh@ for pointing out where the bug in llong.h was.
