(ITS#4902) ManPage in 2.3.19 RPM is completely screwed up

I don't know if the people who are in charge to build a RPM are paying attention
to what they are doing or not.

You can do a man ldap_init, and then look at /usr/include/ldap.h for the
function definition.

I am not a LDAP expert or anything close to that. But it seems to me that
function called ldap_init has already been replaced by the function called
ldap_initialize, and they take even different set of parameters.

And yet the manpage not only didn't reflect that change, but enforce the wrong
idea of using ldap_init function by having ldap_init in manpages.

An extremely poor job done by the package maintainer.
