release 0.9.6 of nss-pam-ldapd

This is an update for the 0.9 development branch of nss-pam-ldapd that
includes a few improvements. The branch has stabilised a bit and the
current release should be reasonably stable.

The pynslcd implementation still is not considered as stable as nslcd.

A summary of the changes since 0.9.5:

* fix a race condition in signal handling during start-up that would
  cause nslcd to exit if a signal (such as SIGUSR1 that can be sent
  when network status changes) is received
* fix signed integer overflow on 32bit systems when using objectSid
  (thanks Geoffrey McRae)
* allow longer configuration values (thanks Jed Liu)
* add an nss_getgrent_skipmembers option to disable retrieving group
  members to improve performance in specific environments
* add an nss_disable_enumeration option to disable full listing of all
  users and groups to improve performance in specific environments
  (thanks Andrew Elble)
* implement an innetgr function in the Solaris NSS module
