96 The testsuite is designed for testing changes to nss or nspr and is
97 not particularly useful for checking a released version (e.g. it needs
98 to be run on a non-optimized build with both nss and nspr directories
99 existing alongside each other). For further details, see the User Notes
100 for nss at <ulink url="&blfs-wiki;/nss"/>
