Actually, this is exactly what I proposed to Nikos. I guess it would
make sense to have a new build target to build the LGPL-part only.
And this stripped library could be directly used by GnuTLS, as you
also suggested.

Well, the major problem with opencdk is, that it needs lots of changes
but my timetable does not permit this right now. Maybe the situation
will improve later and then I could do more "advertising".
