probs installing pidgin-encryption tool

hi there, im still new linux user. my problem is i used gaim with gaim-encryption on windows ..... now i want to use the new pidgin on linux. so i installed pidgin and its running without any probs. but i just cant install pidgin-encryption.

im running opensuse 10.2 -gnome
i downloaded pidgin-2.0.0.tar.bz2 and pidgin-encryption-3.0.tar.gz

as i said i had no probs installing and running pidgin itself but i cant install encryption plugin this is what i did and what happens :

1. extracted pidgin-encryption ----- no prob
2. ./configure -------- no prob
3. make install ------ error(starts to do some things and then stops, returning following):

In file included from cryptproto.h:23,
from config_ui.c:32:
rsa_nss.h:33:19: error: keyhi.h: No such file or directory
In file included from cryptproto.h:23,
from config_ui.c:32:
rsa_nss.h:36: error: expected specifier-qualifier-list before 'SECKEYPrivateKey'
make[1]: *** [config_ui.lo] Fehler 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/X-Ray-Jin/Data/Downloads/Tools/pidgin-encryption-3.0'
make: *** [install-recursive] Fehler 1

i browsed the folder for the keyhi.h but cant find it cant even find anywhere else including google,forums ;-)

do you have libnss (and supporting dev files (such as .h files) from the mozilla development tree?

This was the full error on this link,which was same as mine.

This also fixed my problem from the forums.

Basically I entered the wrong path for nss3 after configure.
For me the correct one was: ./configure --with-nss-includes=/usr/include/nss \
--with-nspr-includes=/usr/include/nspr \
--with-nspr-libs=/usr/lib \

So you should know the location for your libnspr, libnss and their devel files.
