release 0.8.6 of nss-pam-ldapd

This is an update for the 0.8 series that includes a few fixes and some
work on the pynslcd implementation. The 0.8 series remains in
development mode and several more changes, enhancements and new features
are planned. Users that require a stable release are encouraged to stay
with 0.7 until 0.8 stabilises.

A summary of the changes since 0.8.5:
* a number of code improvements by Jakub Hrozek
* fixes for FreeBSD (thanks Maxim Vetrov)
* include missing pynslcd files from tarball
* improvements to the pynslcd implementation
* implement an offline cache in pynslcd
* the Debian packaging was split from the main source tree

pynslcd, the Python implementation of nslcd that is included in
nss-pam-ldapd should now be mostly useful for test environments and
testing is welcomed. The newly implemented offline cache should be
functional but for example disappearing users in LDAP are not reflected
in the offline cache yet and LDAP reconnect logic is not yet working.
