I'm using RedHat 7.x. Ok, I'll find out what the deal is with
the red hat 8 & 9. What I'm looking at is NSS & NSPR packages
you can download from mozilla.org. To use NSS, you typically have
to download both separately - this is what I meant by

ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/security/nss/releases/ (NSS)
ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/nspr/releases/ (NSPR).

There may be combined standard packaging I'm not aware of.

Ya, that would be useful. I'll work on it...
