Public bug reported:
nss-pem is needed for apps linked with libnss3 to read certificates in
PEM format. This is required when setting up a freeipa server with ipa-
server-setup, and also certmonger to be able to refresh certificates on
a freeipa client.
To be able to build, nss-pem needs some headers and static libs provided
by nss. They are marked private though, and upstream refuses to make
them public and Debian maintainer refuses to include them in the
packaging because of this.
The required files are blapi.h, alghmac.h, nssckfw.a, nssb.a, freebl.a
and they could be shipped in a separate libnss3-pkcs11-dev package,
because they're not meant for generic consumption via libnss-dev.

- nss-pem needs blapi.h, alghmac.h, nssckfw.a, nssb.a, freebl.a
