As far as I could tell it's just evolution doing it wrong -- we can
certainly see firefox and chromium appear to be fine. I couldn't check
curl simply (libcurl3-nss uses libnss3). I couldn't see a list of
certificate authorities in Pidgin but deleting the certificates and
disconnecting/reconnecting I saw them re-added and no pop-up telling me
they couldn't be validated. I haven't looked at the other reverse-build-
depends of libnss3-dev.

It seemed clear that the way of looking for nssckbi in evolution was
"wrong", but I still need to check to be sure if it's debian-specific or
general to have a libdir for the actual nss libraries and an extra
directory nss/ under that libdir for the "modules" and nssckbi. Maybe
there's a better way to fix this, but I can't think of how in nss
(unless we were to start shipping an extra variable in nss.pc
specifically for nssckbi's path).

In other words, to make this better we could ship an extra var in nss.pc
for the nssckbi path, but it looks like it was just evolution affected
here; there's more investigation needed to certain whether it's worth
it. libdir itself can't really be changed, since it needs to point to
the actual location of the nss libraries.
