  1) move xlat_client from src/main/mainconfig.c to src/main/client.c

  2) hack it so that if "cf_pair_find" returns NULL, then

  3) walk through the "client_config" CONF_PARSER structure, to find
     a named which matches

  4) if the name matches, the matching entry contains the offset in
     the RADCLIENT structure of the data which is needed.

  For now, doing it only for STRING_PTR may be sufficient.

  A more generic way to do this would be to add a function to
src/main/conffile.c which would do most of this work.
