What is the value of creating two CA's? If you have one infrastructure, 
why not have one CA and issue all certificates from that one CA?

You should also check for the existence of NSPR in NUT_CHECK_LIBNSS, 
especially since you've hardcoded those libraries as a fallback.

It isn't clear, can you have an NSS database with no password set?

In server/netssl.c::nss_error you use a buffer of size SMALLBUF and in 
ssl_error 256. Why the difference?

The NSS code looks good to me.
