When using the AM_PATH_LIBGNUTLS_EXTRA macro in configure.in, autoconf
tries to compile a piece of code that references
LIBGNUTLS_EXTRA_VERSION.  However, that symbol isn't defined anywhere,
so the check always fails, leading configure to believe gnutls-extra
isn't available.

This call:


results in:

	checking for libgnutls-extra-config... /usr/bin/libgnutls-extra-config
	checking for libgnutls - version >= 0.1.0... no
	*** Could not run libgnutls test program, checking why...
	*** The test program compiled, but did not run. This usually means
	*** that the run-time linker is not finding LIBGNUTLS_EXTRA or finding the wrong
	*** version of LIBGNUTLS_EXTRA. If it is not finding LIBGNUTLS_EXTRA, you'll need to set your
	*** LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable, or edit /etc/ld.so.conf to point
	*** to the installed location  Also, make sure you have run ldconfig if that
	*** is required on your system
	*** If you have an old version installed, it is best to remove it, although
	*** you may also be able to get things to work by modifying LD_LIBRARY_PATH

config.log contains:

	configure:2384: checking for libgnutls - version >= 0.1.0
