Subtly wrong. The --libdir flag is not used by anything in Debian.
However the upstream nss-config --libs also emits:

    -Wl,-rpath-link,$libdir -L$libdir

So we are injecting a wrong library directory in some practical
situations. The rpath is a difference to the current nss-config. I
suspect that it alone would break stuff.

It would break. Even natively. However with a one-line patch removing
the unnecessary -L flag and the rpath, I think we can reach agreement
here. Thank you for your persistence.

Do you want to implement this your self or would you prefer a patch?
