(ITS#7288) Doc update for MemberOf Overlay: add cn=config info

Submission from: (NULL) (

I uploaded a patch to openldap incoming ftp server name
josh-stompro-120605.patch.  This patch updates the man page for the MemberOf
Overlay to include cn=config style instructions, and update the config option
names so they comply with the cn=config style.

I had to resort to google to figure out how to add this overlay since I'm not
all that familiar with the cn=config format yet, and the documentation doesn't
make it easy to figure out.  I found an article on serverfault[1] that had the
examples I needed to get it to work.  This is my attempt to make it easier for
the next individual.
