XMLSec requires a patch to use firefox...also pending enterance into the 
book as I'm trying to get it to work with TB address book too.  The 
build works great, just that you can't use Thunderbird address book as a 
data source.  Grab the xmlsec_no_mozilla-1.patch. rm -rf 
xmlsec/ and apply the patch and restart the build.  All 
should be well.
