New libcaca packages are available for Slackware 15.0 and -current to
fix a security issue.

Here are the details from the Slackware 15.0 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/libcaca-0.99.beta20-i586-1_slack15.0.txz: Upgraded.
Fixed a crash bug (a crafted file defining width of zero leads to divide by
zero and a crash). Seems to be merely a bug rather than a security issue, but
I'd been meaning to get beta20 building so this was a good excuse.
Thanks to marav.
