You need to fix configure so that makes a check for libhogweed
*explicit* instead of bailing out by saying "could not find nettle"!

[I just posted a whiny related note to the gnutls-devel list address
by accident, to which I don't subscribe.  Hopefully that bounced --

Anyway, I had googled and the only thing I found was another note from
a year or so ago to which Nikos said, "Well, it works for me", lol.


Perhaps, not the only person who has gotten snagged with this and may
have never found the solution:


Anyway, I looked in the config.log, saw the -lhogweed bit, googled
about that, and found more mail from Nikos last month explaining the
libnettle - gmp - hogweed issue.

Maybe putting a note on the web page would be nice too.  I just wasted
a half hour on this. :(
