	After years of staleness and after 6 months of


	There is new NSPR-release out there, the 4.6.

	This should make possible the long-needed "modularization" --
	making our browser ports dependant on devel/nspr instead of
	building their own. This could not be done before, because
	the standalone release was hopelessly out of date...

	The new release incorporates all code _fixes_ required by
	FreeBSD (hence the removal of most of the pr-patches).



	Please find the diff at


	It now compiles cleanly with -Wall -- on amd64.

	For the purposes of QA on our different platforms, the port
	also builds and tries to use vendors self-tests -- see the
	comments around "test" target.

	I had no problems building nss against the new nspr.

	Please, allow committing. Thanks.
