I vaguely recall, that netscape for some unfathomable reason, took a
very different approach to security and nss, between [sol8 and sol

One of them attempts to compile, and does actually deliver in the
package, a completely separate [lib*nss*solaris*security*] or
something, and one does not.
It gets dynamically linked in to the "main" nss lib, and is a critical
dependancy, if i recall correctly.
