release 0.8.13 of nss-pam-ldapd

This is a maintenance update that fixes a number of minor issues most of
which were backported from the 0.9.0 release. Only a few minor new
features were added. This should be a reasonably stable and well tested

A summary of the changes since 0.8.12:

* include an extra sanity check to ensure not too many file descriptors
  are open
* fix handling of the gid configuration option if it listed before the
  uid option
* fix microsecond timeout calculation (thanks Julien Cristau)
* return NSS_STATUS_TRYAGAIN on zero-length (but not-NULL) buffer
  (thanks Jakub Hrozek)
* provide an _nss_ldap_version symbol in the NSS module to help debug
  problems with a newer nslcd
* retry updating the lastChange attribute with the normal nslcd LDAP
  connection if the update with the user's connection failed
* avoid processing passwd_byuid requests for uids below nss_min_uid
* fix a few minor or very unlikely to occur memory leaks
* fix the text representation of shadow information for nscd on Solaris
* make the way manual pages are built and installed more consistent with
  the chosen configure options
* miscellaneous minor changes, fixes and compatibility improvements
