Hello Dimitri,

Opencdk was never included in gnutls. That openpgp functionality was
being disabled if it was not found. For 1.0.0 I made it mandatory
to have the openpgp functionality, so applications can depend
on that api. Embedded systems that do not need that functionality
can still use the --disable-openpgp-authentication as a configure

You should use the --with-libopencdk-prefix parameter for the
opencdk library.
