Patch to reduce the number of debug messages

Using mod_authnz_ldap with loglevel debug results in 8 messages every time an
LDAP URL is parsed.  Because this happens early in startup, these go to stderr,
and on Windows create a separate error event in the event log for every
message, which is worse.  It also shows up when you do "apachectl -k stop".

I'm not sure this information needs to be logged at all (maybe left over from
when this code was developed?).  But if we do want it logged, at least we can
cut down the number of messages from 8 to 1, which will greatly reduce the
clutter in the Windows event log.

The patch provided collapses the information from the 8 separate messages into
a single message.  Instead of
