Description Ian Perry 2004-12-01 07:41:36 UTC
I have both Gaim and Firefox installed, and wanted to upgrade to the latest version of gaim-encryption. I noticed that it no longer requires nss (and nspr) to be installed, but is instead happy if either Firefox or Mozilla is installed. Unfortunately, it can't find the nss and nspr libraries in my case.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. emerge unmerge dev-libs/nspr dev-libs/nss
2. ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge net-www/mozilla-firefox
3. ACCEPT_KEYWORDS="~x86" emerge x11-plugins/gaim-encryption

Actual Results:  
checking for mozilla-nss... Package mozilla-nss was not found in the pkg-config
search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `mozilla-nss.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'mozilla-nss' found
checking for Mozilla nspr4 includes... no
configure: error: You need to specify --with-nspr-includes="dir"
                     (where "dir" is the location of the NSPR headers like prio.h)

Expected Results:  
gaim-encryption should have located libnspr4 and libnss3 in /usr/lib/MozillaFirefox

From what I understand, there are two possible solutions to this problem:

1. The net-www/mozilla-firefox ebuild is modified to install the relevant .pc
files for pkg-config to be able to locate its libs. The problem here is that it
would clobber the files from dev-libs/nss and dev-libs/nspr, so you might have
to put a block in as well. Haven't checked the situation with net-www/mozilla.

2. The x11-plugins/gaim-encryption ebuild is modified to manually locate the two
relevant libraries. Less elegant, but probably a simpler solution.

I'll let you devs work out which is the better solution. Hope I don't cause a
flamewar. :-)

Comment 2 2004-12-01 17:05:06 UTC
I'm also having this problem, latexer said that mozilla provides the mozilla-nss.pc file for him, but I don't have it at all in my /usr/lib/pkgconfig/

The little checking I could think of ... mozilla-firefox-1.0-r3 doesn't have it in its CONTENTS, neither do gnutls-1.0.17 nor nss-3.9.2

hope this helps
