[botan-devel] 1.9.18 obnoxious bug

The initial tarball of 1.9.18 had a bug in the base64 decoder which
would cause test failures on Windows - it would not ignore \r
characters as whitespace. Rather than push a new version I've taken
the lazy route and just replaced the 1.9.18 tarballs with new ones
with this one fix.

This could also cause problems on Unix, if you read in a cert or
public key in PEM format with DOS line endings.

The corrected version has these SHA-1 sums:

1f91ba1004fe457229a29fec95b0f108b48dc065  Botan-1.9.18.tgz
a8d3740a57515c43b61cc0e9c1499d9b375112f7  Botan-1.9.18.tbz
