Thanks Toni for your reply

#zypper output
Problem: jdic-0.9.5-0.pm.1.i586 requires libxpcom_core.so, but this
requirement cannot be provided
  uninstallable providers: MozillaSunbird-0.8-16.85.i586[repo-oss]
I locked all these package, to prevent their installation. I wanted a
slim frostwire installation, not 20MB of mozillasunbird (and other
deps totalling ++60MB) that I will never ever use.

My question was not "what are frostwires deps". It was, "why do I need
to install mozilla Sunbird?" Is there something else that can provide
"libxpcom_core.so" as shown above (that is smaller than seamonkey,
Tbird, or Sbird?
