Does gnutls10 include versioned symbols?  If so, there should be no
reason to include "tls10" in the package name, since the ABI will not
change with further soname changes of gnutls.

Samba will be fixed to not depend directly on gnutls at all; it only
uses symbols from two libs (libldap2 and libcupsys2) that depend on it.
