Sure, we'll add it until gnutls 2.7.x has been released stable, it
doesn't use libtasn1-config anymore.  Do you know of any other software
that uses libtasn1-config?

Given that the libtasn1 master branch introduces an ABI break, I think
we'll need a libtasn1 1.7 that only re-adds the libtasn1-config stuff.
I'll see if I can prepare one today.

Thanks for pointer, I'll look over these.
