The command
modutil -delete <module_name>
should delete the named module if it exists in the secmod.db file,
whether or not it is able to load the module's shared library. 

But today, modutil will erroneously state that there is no such module
in the DB if it cannot load the module.  

This makes it impossible to delete modules from secmod.db after they've
been uninstalled.

retarget for NSS 3.9, since this wasn't fixed for 3.8.1

The patch to fix bug 203866 will fix this problem as well.
