Looking more closely at this code made me change my mind though.  The
declaration is:


and the variable is used like this:

      get_keyid (keyid, info.pgp_subkey);
        gnutls_pcert_import_openpgp_raw (&pgp_crt, &data, GNUTLS_OPENPGP_FMT_BASE64, info.pgp_subkey!=NULL?keyid:NULL, 0);
           gnutls_openpgp_privkey_set_preferred_key_id (tmp_pgp_key, keyid)

Those functions has prototypes like this:

int get_keyid (gnutls_openpgp_keyid_t keyid, const char *str)

int gnutls_pcert_import_openpgp_raw (gnutls_pcert_st *pcert,
	const gnutls_datum_t* cert, 
	gnutls_openpgp_crt_fmt_t format, 
	gnutls_openpgp_keyid_t keyid,
	unsigned int flags)

gnutls_openpgp_privkey_set_preferred_key_id (gnutls_openpgp_privkey_t key,
                                             const gnutls_openpgp_keyid_t

So the proper type to use seems to be gnutls_openpgp_keyid_t instead of
uint8_t/unsigned char.  It is declared like this:

  typedef unsigned char gnutls_openpgp_keyid_t[GNUTLS_OPENPGP_KEYID_SIZE];

I've made this change now...  (keeping stdint.h, it doesn't hurt that
much I think)
