Thanks for your quick answer.
I hope you don't mind when I say that it is obvious, that the command
contains at least one error - otherwise I wouldn't need help.
In general, I
think there is quite a bit of confusion between the system
NSS (Name Switch Service - man nss - e.g. /etc/nsswitch.conf) used for
naming services (hosts, passwd, etc.) and Mozilla NSS (Network Security
Services) used for cryptographic services. In the interest of sanity, I
will refer to Mozilla NSS as moznss.
It's also incorrect because you specify both -with-nss-inc and
--wth-nss-lib you must not also specify --with-nss.
It's also incorrect because the values for --with-XXX= should be a _path
name_ not a _file name_.
--with-nss and --with-nspr take the _path name_ of a directory. This
directory should contain a "lib" sub directory containing the shared
libraries, and should contain an "include" directory containing the .h
files. Since this may not always be the case that the lib and include
sub-directories are in the same parent directory, separate
--with-nss-inc and --with-nss-lib switches were added to give you more
fine grained control.
/usr/include/ contains nss.h - correct option?
This is system NSS, not moznss. So,
not correct option.
/usr/lib/nss/ contains libnssdbm3.so - correct option?
system NSS, not moznss, so not correct option.
/usr/local/include/nspr contains nspr.h - correct option?
could be - did you build this one?
/usr/local/lib/ contains libnspr4.so - correct option?
be - did you build this one?
/usr/src/mozilla/security/nss/lib contains nss.h - correct option?
No, as I explained above.
And, by the way, this is not my first attempt to compile software on a
linux system. My first attempt was somewhere in 1995.
