#5058: Members search - fallback to wp_users table

 If the "Extended Profiles" component is not enabled, the members search
 box should query against the wp_users table.

 '''Use case:'''
 We currently use multi site and just added BuddyPress. We use custom user
 meta fields extensively so migrating over to the BP extended profiles
 component is not really an option. I'd imagine this is true for other site
 owners as well.

 In this case, the members search doesn't work at all. I wasn't able to
 find a plugin or hook to change this behavior.

 Ideally, BP search would query wp_users regardless of having the "Extended
 Profiles" component enabled. That way there's no dependency with that
 component nor the data in the wp_bp_xprofile_data table.
