The .chk files are only needed when NSS is
operating in the "FIPS" mode.  Mozilla clients
use NSS in the non-FIPS mode by default.  This
is why you haven't noticed anything broken.

This is a problem with our build system.  Also,
some of the NSS developers think it is useful
to ship all those executables.  I disagree, but
I don't have the patience to convince them on
this relatively unimportant issue.
