we can of course improve the configure.ac script to be more portable. I can
see we use it in Fedora with parameters '--without-ssl --with-nss=...'. Could
you try this combination? Generally there are three possibilities to find NSS
libraries:

1) specify the location of NSS libraries manually
2) find it automatically using pkg-config
3) hardwired (emergency ?) configuration in configure.ac

Please try all three cases. Does pkg-config work properly if you invoke it
manually?
