Hi all,

I found recent upgrading nss cause curl configure failing to detect nss 
Happens only in CentOS 6.7, didn't observe it on Ubuntu 14.04.

nss upgrade is present both in master and in libreoffice-5-1.

In libreoffice-5-1 the commit where this is first seen is:

Relevant verbose configure in CentOS follows (obtained on CentOS 6.7 
compiling libreoffice5-1 branch):
checking whether to enable Windows native SSL/TLS (Windows native builds 
only)... no
checking whether to enable iOS/Mac OS X native SSL/TLS... no
configure: WARNING: Using hard-wired libraries and compilation flags for 
checking for SSL_VersionRangeSet in -lnss3... no
configure: WARNING: SSL disabled, you will not be able to use HTTPS, 
FTPS, NTLM and more.
configure: WARNING: Use --with-ssl, --with-gnutls, --with-polarssl, 
--with-cyassl, --with-nss, --with-axtls, --with-winssl, or 
--with-darwinssl to address this.
checking default CA cert bundle/path... /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt
checking whether versioned symbols are wanted... no
checking whether to enable Windows native IDN (Windows native builds 
only)... no
checking whether to build with libidn... no
