It is easy to be built with xulrunner>=8, but it break to build with
it is because NPAPI is changed, but NPAPI version macro is not bumped,
so it is impossible to switch with its version.

Yes, devel/xulrunner and devel/xulrunner192 is co-existable.
xulrunner is just required to build, so pulgins itself should be usable with
both www/firefox and www/firefox36.
I decided to switch using xulrunner192, because I don't want to future
break API compatibility again, but it will be pulled up to stable branch for
security reason, and it break plugin packages again.
