Now I get "Requested 'gnutls >= 3.0' but version of GnuTLS is 2.12.23"
-- again, this isn't a big deal. I'm just trying to do a test build,
and I'm not worried about TLS connectivity to keyservers.

That said, if I did want to compile the latest version of GnuTLS from
source, where should one place the compiled results so that the GnuPG
build process would know about it?

To my untrained, non-developer[1] eye, there appears to be several
things that failed though I'm not sure how to interpret things
correctly. The full config log is ~250kB. I've posted it to a Pastebin
at http://pastebin.com/xZjzsZju if that would help.

[1] I've written and compiled a few ad-hoc C programs for my research,
but I'm very much a beginner at this sort of thing. I apologize for my
lack of knowledge in this regard. Thank you (and others) for your
patience and help.
