(ITS#8682) Malformatted man pages on AIX and Solaris

Man pages are incorrectly formatted on AIX and Solaris.
The problem is that the .BR directive only takes 6 arguments on these platforms
and some man pages (.e.g ldapadd.1, ldapmodify.1 and ldapsearch.1) use more
It is known to affect the options -s, -a, -e and -E.
For example, in ldapsearch.1, the line
.BR \-s \ { base \||\| one \||\| sub \||\| children }]
will be formatted as:
-s {base|sub|

The fix is to break up the line in ldapsearch.1 as e.g:
.BR \-s \ {\c
.BR base \||\| one \||\|\c
.BR sub \||\| children }]
