Interesting. We are not installing the libsoftokn3.chk in the current port 
(3.10) -- only the .so itself. Same with 3.11. Do we need it -- what's 
supposed to break without it?

Why, then, is nss' own install installing 34 other executables? :-) The port 
simply installs the entire ${DIST}/bin and ${DIST}/lib (which is also why, we 
are not getting the libsoftokn3.chk, I guess).

Thanks for your advice. Yours,
