release 0.8.10 of nss-pam-ldapd

This is an update for the 0.8 series that includes a few smaller
changes. With this release the 0.8 series should now be considered
stable and should be preferred over the 0.7 series.

The 0.8 series has a few advantages over the 0.7 series. Apart from
numerous small improvements and new features the biggest changes are:
* support for Solaris and FreeBSD
* introduction of pynslcd, an experimental alternative for nslcd
* addition of a validnames option
* checking shadow attributes for PAM authorisation
* support mapping to the objectSid attribute
* support pam_unix when not getting shadow information from LDAP

A summary of the changes since 0.8.9:
* documentation improvements
* fix a problem that causes the PAM module to prompt for a new password
  even though the old one was wrong
* log successful password change in nslcd
* install default configuration file with reduced permissions (further
  protection for CVE-2009-1073)
