In the future, I will do what you suggested, and
also provide nss-a.b-with-nspr-x.y.tar.gz for people
who want a fully buildable NSS source tree.  I don't
want to change nss-3.11.tar.gz now because it's been
published for a while.

Here is the NSPR 4.6.1 Release Notes, which list
all the changes since NSPR 4.6:

I recommend you upgrade to the latest patch release.
(That is, if you are using NSPR 4.6, you should upgrade
to the latest NSPR 4.6.x.)  But you can certainly read
the release notes or source code diffs and make your
own decision.
