    tcsh: Update from version 6.17.00 to 6.18.01
    There were 8 releases since the last tcsh update.
    The changes of each are listed below.
    When the output of "csh --version" is compared to the previous version,
    two differences are noticed.  The first is dpsm is not showing.  This is
    correct because it cannot be set simultaneously with widestar as it was.
    The second difference is the system malloc is no longer used.  The
    sources inside say system malloc can be significantly slower and that
    memory statistics will not be available if used.  It also went to pains
    to remove the option even if hard-coded in config_p.h.
    The identifier for --version was fixed for x86_64 platform by
    updating host.defs file.
