When I run

make -f build-aux/speedo.mk native

it does quite a bit, but always seems to spit out the following errors
and fails to complete. The bit about gnutls is non-critical for me,
but it'd be nice to resolve it. The "required libraries not found"
error seems to be a showstopper, though.

I'm doing the build on a stock Ubuntu Server 14.04 32-bit system. I've
installed the "build-essential" package from the repo, so I have gcc,
make, etc.

configure: WARNING:
*** Building without NTBTLS and GNUTLS - no TLS access to keyservers.
*** No package 'gnutls' found
configure: error:
*** Required libraries not found. Please consult the above messages
*** and install them before running configure again.
make[1]: *** [/home/pete/gpg/gnupg-2.1.0-beta864/PLAY/stamps/stamp-gnupg-01-configure]
Error 1
make[1]: Leaving directory `/home/pete/gpg/gnupg-2.1.0-beta864'
make: *** [native] Error 2

Any ideas?

Thanks for the reminder.
