[Swan-dev] test suite needs some NSS something

I just ran the test suite for the first time in a few months. Just to be
safe, I started with "make kvm-demolish".
At the end of the (apparently complete) run, I got this new message:
make: Entering directory '/home/build/libreswan'
Package nss was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `nss.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
Package 'nss', required by 'virtual:world', not found
testing/web/json-tests.sh . ./RESULTS/tests ./RESULTS/v4.7-79-gdc4bc306d7-main
make: Leaving directory '/home/build/libreswan'
That would seem to be somewhat fatal.
How come it came so late? Testing had run for 8 hours and had run lots of tests:

What is the problem and what is the fix?
Is this a problem on the host or on a virtual machine?
/home/build/libreswan is a directory on the host, perhaps it is also a
directory on the virtual machines.
Why would nss be needed on the host (Fedora 36)?
nss-3.79.0-1.fc36.x86_64 is installed on the host (but not
If something is needed on a virtual machine, surely our tooling should
palce it there.
