[VM] MIME encoding/decoding

VM has traditionally shipped with C programs for MIME encoding/decoding.
Rob F created an entire Unix-like infrastructure (Make files, configure,
autoconf etc.) pretty much to handle just these.  If we get rid of these C
programs, VM can be shipped just like any other emacs library.

Both GNU Emacs and XEmacs now have built-in encoding/decoding functionality
for base64.  So, we can use them.  For the Quoted Printable format,
emacs-lisp seems to be fast enough.  Gnus has been using it for ages and
everybody seems happy with that.

So, I am thinking of getting rid of the C programs for MIME.  Does anybody
see any problem with that?
