This seems to be slightly broken:

a) If there is no local installation of autoopts-config/
running gnutls' make install gives you /usr/lib/ and
the cmdline utilities are linked against it.

b) With a local $libdir/ and autoopts-config (25.10.0) I get
a build error:

serv-args.h:63:3: error: unknown type name 'Choke'
serv-args.h:63:11: error: expected '=', ',', ';', 'asm' or '__attribute__' before '.' token

I think the correct behavior for a) is to build and link against a
local helper library (noinst_LTLIBRARIES ...) instead of installing
a shared library to $libdir.

OTOH (b) if libopts is locally installed the respective autogenerated
files (serv-args.h) should also be regenerated instead of breaking

I will take a look at this tomorrow. (Unless weather permits
