it sounds like you're running into a problem with apache mod_gnutls,
which is a distinct project from gnutls itself -- mod_gnutls is a
project to connect Apache (the web server) with the GnuTLS transport
layer security library.

The right place to follow up on this is probably either the mod_gnutls
mailing list (i'm cc'ing it here):

  mod_gnutls-devel at lists.gnutls.org

or on ubuntu's packaging bug reports on https://launchpad.net/

fwiw, the mod_gnutls packaging for ubuntu should have caught this error
message during the test suite.

however, looking at http://packages.ubuntu.com/search?keywords=apache2,
i don't think that ubuntu 12.04 LTS actually has apache 2.4 at all (i
think it shipped with apache 2.2), so i'm not sure what is going on with
your system.

Did you compile these tools yourself?  if so, what versions are you
working with?
