In nss/lib/libpkix/pkix/util/pkix_tools.h at about line 330, we see:

330 /* disable to disable ;-) */
331 #define WANT_TRACE_CHECK_FAILURES

With that symbol defined, HUGE numbers of strings are found in nss3.dll.
With that symbol undefined (by commenting out the above line), the size
of DEBUG builds of nss3.dll is reduced by hundreds of kilobytes. 

So, I want that symbol to be undefined by default ASAP.
