Ported manage-gids option from mountd

Signed-off-by: Daniel Kobras <kobras@puzzle-itc.de>

Hi Steve!

Option --manage-gids should still be useful with NFSv4 and AUTH_SYS, but 
commit 15dc0bead10d20c31e72ca94ce21eb66dc3528d5 does not allow to actually
control the global variable manage_gids from exportd. I assume something
like the following was intended?

Kind regards,

Daniel
