Looking into the configure mess, the underlying problem appears to be 
that --enable-mozilla does not only control whether to build module moz 
(BUILD_MOZAB, PREBUILD_MOZAB) and what depends on it, but also 
(WITH_MOZILLA) whether to build things that are related to Mozilla (like 
the npsoplugin, <http://wiki.documentfoundation.org/Npsoplugin>) but do 
not depend on module moz.

That needs clean-up.
