Stupid haste error.  Apparently new versions of perl
only generate a warning while older version will error out.
Reason the error was not caught during the release process.

Bogus "my" operators in base64.pl removed.  Changes checked
into CVS.

Older versions of perl will error out with something like
the following message:

Can't use global $1 in "my" at /usr/perl5/site_perl/5.005/base64.pl line 55,
