ClustalW 1.74 output and GCG pretty

Some users of mine have found that GCG MSF files as output by clustalw
1.74 do not work well with pretty from GCG 9.1.  This is because the
weight values output by clustalw are very small.  Thus I have created
this tiny patch to clustalw 1.74 to scale up all the weights it
outputs in GCG files by a factor of 100.  Works for me!  If anyone can
think of any problems this might cause I'd like to hear them.

Tim.
