Setting gnutls to use nettle instead of libgcrypt

I'm using gnutls version 2.12.7-2 and nettle version 2.1-1

Actually, nettle is linked to gnutls, so I think gnutls is using nettle,
through the program I'm using looks to be using libgcrypt (because it's
linked to libgcrypt), but the help forums of that program seems to say
they're using the crypto of gnutls. Quite complicated situation >.>
(That program is aria2).

Do you know how I can know which crypto backend gnutls is using ?
