Is there a reason to avoid the version installed from wheezy-backports?

and where are these tools installed?  are they in /usr/local/ someplace,
or in your home directory?

it looks to me like gnutls finds the paths for nettle based on the
output of pkg-config, which itself uses the .pc files stored (on debian
at least) in /usr/lib/$archtriple/pkgconfig/*.pc  (e.g. $archtriple
might be x86_64-linux-gnu). Is it possible that your local nettle
compilation failed to place a *.pc file someplace that pkgconfig would
prefer it over your system-installed nettle.pc and hogweed.pc?
