release 0.7.18 of nss-pam-ldapd

This is an update for the 0.7 series that includes two file descriptor
related fixes. The changes should be minimal and have mostly been
available in the 0.8 branch for some time.

A summary of the changes since 0.7.17:
* ensure that select() is not passed a too high file descriptor to avoid
  issues when a large number of file descriptors are open (thanks Adrien
* use FD_CLOEXEC in NSS and PAM modules to ensure that nslcd file
  descriptors are not leaked to child processes

The 0.7 series will only occasionally receive further bugfixes and will
not include any new features. Users of the 0.7 series are encouraged to
consider upgrading to a 0.8 release which is now considered stable and
includes a number of enhancements.
