Currently nick_format does not support %last_name. It is useful though when one got multiple contacts with the same first name. The attached patch adds the nick source.

The attached patch also completely ignores BitlBee's coding style.

I've considered adding this back then, but don't want to fall for this Americanism of assuming full names only ever consist of two words. You never know exactly where the last name starts.

Admittedly %first_name already has this problem, but at least it was easy to implement.

If someone else shows interest in this, I'd consider merging a cleaned up version of this patch.
