NSS Shared System Database non-functional

Bug Description

Ubuntu 16.04 appears to ship with libnsssysinit.so configured in /etc/pki/nssdb as it should be, but the library isn't *present*. So when applications such as Evolution attempt to open it, they fail:

(evolution:20974): camel-WARNING **: Failed to initialize NSS SQL database in sql:/etc/pki/nssdb: NSS error -8126

For background, see https://wiki.mozilla.org/NSS_Shared_DB_And_LINUX and https://wiki.mozilla.org/NSS_Shared_DB

This of course means that even if I wanted to work around bug 1647285 (where apps using NSS don't honour the system SSL trust settings) by manually adding the company certs to /etc/pki/nssdb, applications can't even use *that*...
