Initial testing: broken before my patches:

checking for GnuTLS... configure: error: Package requirements (gnutls >=
3.3.0) were not met:

Requested 'gnutls >= 3.3.0' but version of GnuTLS is 2.8.5

You'll want to make the new TLS code conditional, and merely disable TLS
rather than fail the entire build if you don't have a new enough library
to rely on.  I might be able to develop that patch too...
