i'm not entirely sure but i think that the ODF encryption support (which
is the only use of libxmlsec) on Unixes is implemented by using keys
added by Firefox/Thunderbird UI to their user profiles; there is no UI
in LO for adding/removing keys.  probably only NSS can read the
Firefox/Thunderbird key database, so i'm afraid that if you build xmlsec
with anything other than NSS it won't work in practice.
