This patch allows OpenLDAP to use Mozilla NSS for crypto.  The approach uses the
nss_compat_ossl library.  This library allows the code to use the current
OpenSSL API so that the changes to the actual OpenLDAP code are minimized.  This
is the same approach that has been used to port several other packages to use
NSS instead of OpenSSL as part of the Fedora Crypto Consolidation project.

The nss_compat_ossl library is here -

also included with Fedora
