In the Sunbird/Lightning 0.9 release source tarball (, there is one missing folder which is preventing (at least) Lightning from compiling: 'mozilla/security/nss-fips'

It seems that this is supposed to hold the source of NSS 3.11.4 (judging from 'mozilla/ line 262).  I was able to download this ( and extracted 'mozilla/security/nss' as 'mozilla/security/nss-fips' in the Sunbird/Lightning source tree.  This allowed the Lightning build to complete successfully.

Can the source tarball be corrected to include these needed files?

FYI, I am building Lightning 0.9 from source so that it will work on Ubuntu. The .xpi available for download was for some reason built against libstdc++5 rather than libstdc++6 (which also happened with Lightning 0.8).

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
Attempt to compile without the steps above.
Actual Results:  
The compile will fail during the make phase, expecting to link against files in mozilla/security/nss-fips (referenced by mozilla/security/manager/Makefile).

Expected Results:  
Compile successfully.
Ause, can you take a look at this?
