How does this make gnutls a required dependency?  I'm not really very
familiar with the autoconf language, but I thought that this meant that
somebody had said --with-gnutls=yes...

But I think gnutls should be a required dependency.  So much
communication these days require having tsl/ssl functionality that it
seems totally reasonable to me to have that as a requirement.
