I took a quick look but it doesn't seem to be that trivial (to me).

I am planning to re-write mozilla format at some point (like pdf
format got re-written).

I removed the unused functions (and cleaned up includes, removed
HAVE_NSS from format) but then unstable-jumbo doesn't build if
HAVE_NSS is not defined.

Doing the same worked for Frank because maybe the NSS header files
were in standard enough location on his system.

Frank,

Do you have a working patch I can test?
