	Being dependent on nss-3,12 explains why it is not installing  
because nss-3.12 fails to install (ticket 18930) leaving me with  
nss-3.11.9_0.  Shouldn't a failure to install nss-3.12 cause the  
Firefox-x11 to abort during configuration rather than build?
	This leads into another issue, namely that of repeated attempts on  
failed installations.  The repeated attempts are from  each instance  
of detecting a dependency at a new module.  As a result, a lot of  
time is wasted in repeating failed installation attempts.  Can't  
there be some sort of unsuccessful history link list be made  
available for upgrade installed so that repeated attempts are not made?
