[Swan-dev] Git Breakage - blapi.h (fwd)

ecdsa: don't include NSS's "blapi.h", no longer needed and not on debian

(not to be confused with "lbapit.h", which also looks suspect)

Follow-up b319980 and
2d093c9.  The latter
relaced the call to ECDSA_VerifyDigest() with PK11_Verify().

(b319980 droped the link line)
