So after finally getting it to configure, make and check, I installed 
gnutls with libraries in /usr/lib.
In running gnutls-cli I get the message:
"gnutls-cli: error while loading shared libraries: libgnutls.so.28: 
cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory"
libgnutls.so.28 is in /usr/lib.    There is e.g. libgnutls.so.26 in 

Could it be looking in /usr/lib64 for libgnutls.so.28 ?

How do I arrange the arguments to ./configure to get it to install in 
the correct directory/ies?
Or how do I hack the complex tree of Makefiles to achieve the same
