Replace all calls to 'make' with a call to 'make -C lib install': then
libgnutls-extra (and the other GPLv2+ components such as the command
line tool in src/) will not be built or installed.

I suppose you could modify the top-level Makefile.in so that this
happens by default if you cannot modify the make-calls for some reason.
