I trying to compile GnuTLS. These are the steps:
I use Centos 6.2 x86_64

I downloaded Nettle 2.4

[root at localhost opt]# wget
[root at localhost nettle-2.4]# tar zxvf nettle-2.4.tar.gz
[root at localhost nettle-2.4]# cd nettle-2.4
[root at localhost nettle-2.4]# ./configure --enable-shared --prefix=/usr

Version:           nettle 2.4
  Host type:         x86_64-unknown-linux-gnu
  ABI:               64
  Assembly files:    x86_64
  Install prefix:    /usr
  Library directory: ${exec_prefix}/lib64
  Compiler:          gcc
  Shared libraries:  yes
  Public key crypto: no

I run the command make and make install

I downloaded the latest GnuTLS

 ./configure --with-libnettle-prefix=/usr

hecking for shared library run path origin... done
checking whether to use nettle... yes
checking for libnettle... no
configure: error:
  *** Libnettle 2.4 was not found.

What am I missing?

Best wishes
