This is a fun one. 

I am pointing the finger right now at icecat. It seems to be providing
all the nss libraries and 'winning' the dependency. It's making all the
buildroots a good deal larger than they need to be, and possibly making
them link to the wrong nss/nspr, etc. ;( 

I'm not sure why koji buildroots aren't busted however, unless it's
somehow the hosts yum (in the case of koji, f20 and copr el6) is doing
things differently?
