It should be... It failed for me when I tried building against
3.11.9... of course maybe that was when I was building 3.1b3... I
don't remember... /shrug
I still don't know why nss isn't building for some people. In the
mean time, you can hopefully install firefox-x11-devel. It's not
building on intel because of an annoying API bug... but I'll hopefully
have a fix for that soon (see the xorg-devel mailing list if you are
masochistic about the X11 header hell).
