xulrunner-devel usage error

prtypes.h is installed by nspr.  It's in $prefix/include/nspr (IIRC, I'm
on my linux box atm).

Your code should probably check for nspr before xulrunner.

Additionally, xulrunner's pkg-config files probably should be updated to
depend on nspr if they are not currently.
