php (SSA:2013-161-01) for Slackware

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.0 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/php-5.4.16-i486-1_slack14.0.txz: Upgraded.
This is a bugfix release. It also fixes a security issue -- a heap-based
overflow in the quoted_printable_encode() function, which could be used by
a remote attacker to crash PHP or execute code as the 'apache' user.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
