Correct dependencies on libgnutls-dev? (#370387)


 I received #370387 claiming that I should version my libgnutls-dev dep
 because libgnutls11-dev provides libgnutls-dev and this can cause
 multiple versions of libgnutls to be linked to a binary (e.g. the
 version pulled by libsoup, and the version pulled by -lgnutls when the
 binary is built).

 I consider all of this is normal even if it indeed allows binaries to
 end up linked with multiple versions of gnutls.

 If we were to force all binaries to link to one and only one gnutls,
 then we wouldn't allow two or three gnutls versions in the archive at
 the same time.

 Is this correct?  Am I missing something?

   Thanks for comments,
