(ITS#6488) Nssov updates for new versions of nss-pam-ldapd

Submission from: (NULL) (

The nssov overlay currently includes a very old version of the nss-ldapd (now
nss-pam-ldapd) source.  It's not necessary to keep a source tree of
nss-pam-ldapd within openldap now, as the patches for pam_ldap support in the
stub library were integrated upstream.  This patch removes the nss-ldapd source
tree from nssov, except for a few files which are unlikely to change, and on
which nssov depends.

This patch also updates nssov to support the newer versions of nss-pam-ldapd. 
There were some organizational changes, header changes, and changes of the names
of constants since the version of nss-ldapd that is currently in the source.

This patch also removes the dependence on the configure script of nss-ldapd. 
Currently, the configure script has to be run in the nss-ldapd subdirectory to
generate a few constants which are needed by the parts of nss-ldapd that nssov
depends on.  These same constants are generated by the openldap configure
script, and this patch changes the include path to include the relevant header
from the openldap configure script, instead of requiring a separate configure
script from nss-ldapd.

This patch also updates the nssov Makefile to use the new nss-pam-ldapd files
location and to create an install target that is separate from the all target.

The README and man page are updated to reflect that nss-ldapd is no longer
included in the source, and point to where to get it.  They are also changed to
reflect the new name of nss-ldapd: nss-pam-ldapd

The patch is at: http://scalar.cluenet.org/~crispy/nssov-nsspamldapd-update.patch
It applies on the nssov directory.
