Can you tell me what 'gnutls-serv'  is useful for, and how to build
only the library? I'd like to suggest to the Sage developers we don't
build this bit, and whilst I would have no problems gettting others to
agree if I made the change specific to HP-UX (as most don't care about
that platform), I'd have more difficulty if I suggested the change was
made on every platform. But if the file is of no use, and it will save
a few clock cycles and disk space not building it, perhaps I'll
suggest we drop it on all platforms. But I'd need to know a bit about
how useful it is before suggesting we don't build it.
