Remove info which turns out to be wrong, for builds of (only) nss various unittest files are compiled.

NSS

Old notes, retained in case still useful

ppc64

On ppc64, building 32-bit barfs on -z defs when CC is overridden to "gcc -m32". Use the patch at http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/patches/downloads/nss/nss-3.11-zdefs-1.patch and read the instructions in it.

Test Suite: CRL tests

cert.sh uses the local time when creating revocation lists. This can cause a number of tests (130 out of 800) to fail.

Fix:

cd mozilla/security/nss/tests/cert/ &&
sed 's/date "*+%Y%m%d%H%M%SZ"*/date -u "+%Y%m%d%H%M%SZ"/g' < cert.sh \
    > cert.sh.tmp && mv cert.sh.tmp cert.sh

x86

NSS is unlikely to compile with MAKEFLAGS set to "-j 2". The build process relies on files that it creates for itself very early in the process, so make sure to turn off multi-threaded builds for this one (though it is not recommended that you use the "-j 2" option at all).
