There are only 4 C header files that are needed to build a NPAPI plugin.
They may as well be shipped inside LibO and not bother with external
deps for this - it would mean adding another build/configure test for
npapi-sdk along with the ones looked for now.
The NPAPI API is stable so an internal copy should be fine.
But I think mozilla build-dep was needed anyway for LDAP, I don't know
if that dependency is obsolete or not.
