Issue 681: https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/issues/681
Author:    Matthias Gierlings

Trying to verify the fix for #682, I was unable build the latest master on Kubuntu 18.04.1 LTS. The last version I managed to build without problem is `tags/gnutls_3_6_4`.

Building the latest master `./configure` aborts with the following output:
checking for NETTLE... no
configure: error: 
  *** Libnettle 3.4.1 was not found.

Using the version tagged `gnutls_3_6_5`:

checking for NETTLE... no
configure: error: 
  *** Libnettle 3.4 was not found.

Libnettle shipped with the distribution:
ldconfig -p | grep nettle && apt show nettle*
	libnettle.so.6 (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libnettle.so.6
	libnettle.so (libc6,x86-64) => /usr/lib/x86_64-linux-gnu/libnettle.so
