Diff file for the section "28.5. Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)" of the handbook

Section "28.5. Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP)" of the handbook contains several errors (typos, wrong steps) and needs also to be updated: the use of a file slapd.ldif is recommended now, replacing the deprecated slapd.conf. 

1) The first part of the guide has been expanded, corrected and improved; 
2) the second part of the guide has been completely rewritten, providing a working example of the slapd.ldif file and all the necessary steps for the server configuration.

The text has been improved after the useful suggestions in:
https://reviews.freebsd.org/D10600

Then, for the composition, formatting and further improvements, the primer has been followed:

$ svn diff --diff-cmd=diff -x -U999999 network-servers/chapter.xml > 28-5_LDAP.diff

is attached.

Log:
  Rewrite the LDAP server section of the handbook.

  The Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) section of the handbook
  contains several errors (typos, wrong steps) and was in need of updates
  to reflect current versions of the software. Rocky Hotas provided a patch
  for review that fixes many of those bugs and extends the instructions in
  the first part. The second part received a complete rewrite, providing
  working example configuration files and steps to get the server running.

  I made only a few cleanups and corrections to the patch to fit our
  documentation guidelines. Most of the work was done by the submitter, big
  thanks for his work and patience!
