[Slackbuilds-users] Small typo in ngspice README file

Today I tried to build ngspice version 4.7.0, and the scripts I use to
do it behaved abnormally. Tracing what happened, I found a trailing
slash in the first source file listed in the DOWNLOAD field of the
"info" file. This slash fooled wget and it downloaded an index file
instead of the compressed source code.

Below I attach a git patch which hopefully solves this small typo.

Many thanks,

Subject: [PATCH] academic/ngspice: fixed download URL in info file

The DOWNLOAD field of the info file quoted two file URLs, but the first
one had a trailing slash that fooled wget, making it act as it was a
directory and eventually downloading an index.html file.
