The error occurs when building evolution with nss enabled. See http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=154213. It should probably be fixed now, but if not, it can be worked around in a couple of ways; either copy the necessary nss headers to your include directory:

  • NOTE: replace <mozilla_directory> with the correctly versioned mozilla directory

 $ mkdir $prefix/include/<mozilla_directory>/nss
 $ cp $source/mozilla/dist/public/nss/*.h $prefix/include/<mozilla_directory>/nss

or instruct jhbuild to use the libraries in /usr/lib (assuming you have the appropriate mozilla development libraries from your distribution installed) by adding something similar to the following (make sure to find the correct directories) to your ~/.jhbuildrc:

module_autogenargs['evolution'] = '--with-nss-includes=/usr/include/mozilla-1.7.10 --with-nspr-includes=/usr/include/mozilla-1.7.10 --with-nspr-libs=/usr/lib --with-nss-libs=/usr/lib'
module_autogenargs['evolution-data-server'] = '--with-nss-includes=/usr/include/mozilla-1.7.10 --with-nspr-includes=/usr/include/mozilla-1.7.10 --with-nspr-libs=/usr/lib --with-nss-libs=/usr/lib'

Error - libgtkhtml-3.6 is required

 libgtkhtml-3.6 is required


This almost certainly means that gtkhtml was not built properly, possibly because you ignored an error jhbuild had with it or skipped the module. Go back and have jhbuild build gtkhtml ('jhbuild buildone gtkhtml' in another terminal, if you like)
