The removal of gcrypt breaks lib compatibility with old apps that used
gcry_control to setup gcrypt prior to gnutls init.  While trying out gnutls
2.11.7 other apps load the new lib instead of the old one (even if the new lib
is installed into /usr/local/).  I think they are loading libgnutls.so.26
which is normally linked to libgnutls.so.26.16.14 but gets relinked to
libgnutls.so.26.18.7 when  gnutls 2.11.7 is installed.  I noticed that
libgnutlsxx.26 becomes libgnutlsxx.so.27 in 2.11.7 so why not libgnutls.so.27
