The attached patch fixes two things - the first one is perhaps an actual bug in itself:

1) Datum name compare fixed to disregard spaces and difference in case. This problem affected many BSB charts, e.g., "GD=WGS84" wouldn't match the OCPN datum name "WGS 84". With this patch, OCPN will correctly match the datum of BSB files with "GD=WGS84" or "GD=EUROPEAN 1950"

2) Hermannskogel Datum added; used in some Adriatic charts (datum parameter source: http://www.iho.int/iho_pubs/standard/S60_Ed3Eng.pdf)
This task depends upon
