[racket] AES encryption/decryption support in Racket?...

There are some errors with crypto.plt with the latest versions of OpenSSL.
I think AES should work okay, except for CTR mode, which is not supported
by the default installation of OpenSSL. If you have any problem, I have a
forked version of crypto.plt that works with later versions of OpenSSL. I
put in a bug report on PLaneT some time ago, but I'm not sure anyone is
actively supporting it.
