this message might not fit the topic but might be related to these problems 
regarding nettle.

i installed nettle using a custom --prefix=/home/...

gnutls 3.2.1 configure script is invoked with a PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/home/...
pointing to right pkgconfig location underneath the prefix.

unfortunately gnutls doesn't use the values supplied by pkgconfig.
the makefile „x509/Makefile“ contains the right include path NETTLE_CFLAGS but 
the values isn't passed to the compiler later on. gcc can't find 

regards joke
