I've implemented this in setup and genini to create base64url encoded
checksums.  Setup deals nicely with a setup.ini that has a mix of MD5
(some packages from ports), SHA512-hex (all of cygwin) and SHA512-Base64
(my local packages) checksums.  The latter ones are base64url as defined
in RFC4648, which means the '+' and '/' characters get replaced by '-'
and '_' to be filename and URL safe.  Like this:

I'll have to write a ChangeLog and clean up the code a bit before I'll
post the patches.
