To be sure I just ask the maintainer of the fedora package (David Halik)

it possible to compile and link against a recent system-installed xulrunner ?
Answer from David:
"They patch gstreamer, taglib, and xulrunner heavily, which is why the
dev's provide the vendor ball. I've been through this a couple of times
with them and it's not recommended to use standard versions of either three."
So it seems we are lost for the moment ...
