Oh, maybe too few words made you misunderstood. Just I wanted to
propose to set a minimum version of libnss3 to be supported by
poppler. Ignoring too old libnss would be acceptable solution,
because such old libnss was used when poppler has no signature
calculation. So, the change would be just a few lines in CMakeLists.txt.
Now I'm trying to find the repository of libnss3 to find the minimum
version which we don't have to include prtypes.h...

This idea is either too complicated?
