[slackware-security] gegl (SSA:2017-270-01)

New gegl packages are available for Slackware 14.0, 14.1, 14.2, and -current to
fix security issues.

Here are the details from the Slackware 14.2 ChangeLog:
patches/packages/gegl-0.2.0-i586-4_slack14.2.txz: Rebuilt.
Patched integer overflows in operations/external/ppm-load.c that could allow
a denial of service (application crash) or possibly the execution of
arbitrary code via a large width or height value in a ppm image.
For more information, see:
(* Security fix *)
