I got it to build with only minor problems:

As you mentioned in a previous message:

Copied [...]/tests/sha2/key-subca-dsa.pem from master to [...]/gnutls-2.11.0


configure --disable-valgrind-tests
--with-libgcrypt-prefix=/home/lfinsto/libgcrypt-1.4.6 --prefix=`pwd`

make # Fails:

init.c:36: error: 'GCRY_THREAD_OPTION_VERSION' undeclared here (not in a
make[4]: *** [init.lo] Error 1
make[4]: Leaving directory
make[3]: *** [all-recursive] Error 1
make[3]: Leaving directory `/home/lfinsto/gnutls_dev/gnutls-2.11.0/lib'

I mentioned this problem previously with regard to the master, i.e.,
`--with-libgcrypt-prefix' doesn't seem to have the desired effect
everywhere it should.

This didn't work:

export CFLAGS="-I/home/lfinsto/libgcrypt-1.4.6/include"

make # Fails with same error

This did:

ln -s /home/lfinsto/libgcrypt-1.4.6/include/gcrypt.h

make # Succeeds

make install # Succeeds

make check # Succeeds

I ran across another problem when trying to use the master branch of
GNUTLS and libgcrypt 1.4.6, which I have installed as a normal user (and
below this user's home directory) instead of the (outdated) versions of
these libraries provided by OpenSuse 11.1, namely libgcrypt 1.4.1 and
GNUTLS 2.4.1:  `gcry_check_version' needs to be called before any other
libgcrypt functions but after `gcry_control(GCRYCTL_SET_THREAD_CBS, ...)'.
 My application blocked until I added this.

I found a note you'd written in some file (a ChangeLog?) from 2008
explaining this.  I've made a note to myself to find an appropriate place
in the documentation to explain this and also to have a look through the
example programs to see if it should be included in them.  I think it
should be, since I based the parts of my program that use GNUTLS on a
couple of these example programs.
