I took a brief look at getting cadaver to build with gnutls, just in case
it turned out to be trivial.  Here is the list of missing OpenSSL symbols
that cadaver looks for:


If anyone knows a suitable replacement for these functions within gnutls,
or is inclined to work with gnutls to get these functions implemented,
they might be interested in looking into this package.

Patches to the cadaver build scripts for gnutls detection are available
upon request.

As a data point for the often-asked question of "is gnutls good enough to
use as a replacement?", the undefined symbols listed above represent a
little under 1/3 of the functions cadaver (libneon) uses from OpenSSL.
