base64 - use openssl to replace the GNUlib base64 binary

Since I am no longer a system administrator, I have found it easier to come up with work-arounds, instead of bothering the sysadmins with RPM installation or compilation dependencies. Here is a work-around for a missing GNUlib base64 binary:

    #cat "${TMPFOLDER}/${file}" | base64
openssl enc -base64 -in "${TMPFOLDER}/${file}"
