Yup - as far as I can tell, they're installed normally if you build the
Firefox sources with --enable-application=xulrunner instead of =browser.
Although the Slackware scripts also use a classic ./configure build,
instead of the odd one BLFS uses - I don't know if there's a reason for

One note on that - using a standalone installation of NSS/NSPR
libraries, I had to patch these a little to make all the pieces fit
together. In particular, the libxul-embedding.pc.in file from Firefox
sources needed "Requires: nspr" added to force it to include the
necessary library paths.

I also had some problems that forced me to build NSS with a
system-installed sqlite instead of the bundled one, though I'm not sure
if that was related to xul-runner or not.
