 Refactor all uses of like_escape() to use bp_esc_like()

 WordPress 4.0 will deprecate like_escape(), due to a history of
 documentation and usage. Its replacement is a new method,
 which will be available only in WP 4.0. For this reason, and because the
 return value of $wpdb->esc_like() will not always be identical to that of
 like_escape(), BP cannot do a straight swap of the old function for the
 one. Instead, we introduce a wrapper function that uses the core method if
 available, and otherwise reproduces the logic of that method (for earlier
 versions of WordPress).

 Fixes #5701
 slightly different syntax in some cases
