#1153 curl-7.{27,28}.0 fail to build with metalink and nss


When configured with --with-nss and --with-libmetalink, curl fails to build. An examination of the situation shows that tool_metalink.c doesn't have the code to build/link against nss for its ssl backend. The build system should catch this. See the downstream bug for details:

    Right. So for now, disable metalink if you really want to use NSS - or add the missing code. I don't consider this problem very important and might work on it later if I can get all other open bugs fixed first.

    We'll appreciate patches that fix the situation.
