Hello, is it possible to build GnuTLS from the git source without gnulib-tool? It seems to depend on a very obscure piece of library http://software.schmorp.de/pkg/libev.html that doesn't have https urls or public git sources and conflicts with libevent. This makes it harder to package libev sanely.

Also the `bootstrap` config https://gitlab.com/gnutls/gnutls/-/blob/49f4ae2109b7cc969539b90be92a5844bbe7b322/bootstrap.conf#L95-96 seems to force use of nettle and libtasn1 as submodules. How can that be avoided? How is the release tarballs avoiding that?

Removing bootstrap and running configure shows that the release tarball has a bunch of extra m4 files in `src/gl/m4` that are missing from git. What's the source of those?
