A quick and dirty workaround is to symlink the nss and nspr .pc files
as mozilla-$foo.

An alternative solution that seems to work fine is to:
* revert the part of the "Check less things during configure" patch
that modifies the calls to nspr-config,
* and an else to [1] to do something like this:
cd debian/tmp/usr/include/xulrunner-$(GRE_VERSION) && \
for f in nss/* nspr/*; do \
ln -s $$f $$(basename $$f); \
