Thanks. I see that installing xulrunner-dev also installs libnspr4-dev as a
dependency, just as libmozjs-dev does, so that eliminates one problem,

What I don't understand is that libmozjs-dev is causing a conflict, but
libmozjs itself isn't. I was able to build couchdb like this:

* apt-get install libmozjs-dev        (removes firefox as side effect)
* ... normal build...
* apt-get install firefox             (removes libmozjs-dev as side effect)

It's annoying to have to set LD_LIBRARY_PATH on each run. Setting
LD_RUN_PATH at compile time should build that information into the binary,
but I'll need to test.
