It's not a packaging bug as xpcshell is explicitly excluded:

See https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=289494#c2 for the reason.

With a proper user case, we can go upstream and file a bug. The fix is easy.

Well the/my use case _is_ xpcshell itself. It's a handy testing tool.

if you're interested, it's built in my PPA: https://launchpad.net/~fta/+archive
It's in xulrunner-1.9 - 1.9~a9~cvs20071012t0843-0ubuntu1~mt1~fta4 (you also need the nss from that PPA).
It ships xpcshell as /usr/bin/xpcshell-1.9
