What's wrong with `AM_PATH_LIBGNUTLS'?

Not sure the manuals should be merged, especially since Guile bindings
are optional and part of the guile-gnutls manual is generated using
Guile.  It'd be at least simpler to keep them separated, with
cross-references between them.

When/if a decision is made to integrate it, I can provide the necessary
Autoconf/Automake snippets.  We may also want to make it "Copyright FSF"
and make the manual available under the GFDL with no invariant sections,
etc. (currently it's under a simple permissive copyleft licence, similar
to that of the GNU web pages).
