Added the following LDAP options:

* LDAP_GIVEN_NAME_ATTRIBUTE
* LDAP_SURNAME_ATTRIBUTE
* LDAP_FULL_NAME_ATTRIBUTE

While comments made in http://reviews.reviewboard.org/r/399/ are true (sn and givenName are "standard"), they're not required or mandated to use the same naming conventions.  They are listed as "good practice" and "acceptable" in the related RFCs but are up to the whim of the sysadmin building the system.  Because of this, having flexibility is beneficial.  None of these fields are required and the Full Name Attribute will always be ignored if a response is given for Given Name or Surname.
Tested against LDAP dev LDAP server with long names (greate than two) and changing name attributes for first_name and last_name.
