(ITS#4146) Syncrepl Documentation updates

Submission from: (NULL) (

The slapd.conf manpage says the following for Syncrepl:

"The search specification  for  the  LDAP  Content  Synchronization operation 
has  the  same  value  syntax  and  the same default values as in the 
ldapsearch(1)  client  search tool. "

This is incorrect.  The default search specification for ldapsearch is "*",
while the default search specification for syncrepl is "*,+"

This error is also in and sections of the Admin Guide.

Also, while the Admin guide section on syncrepl has a section on setting up that
type of replication, it doesn't have any mention of the fact that the attrs=
list is optional, and that most people are probably going to want to leave it at
its default value of "*,+".
