this last bit is the issue -- maybe you've got some failed dependency
here?  you should have some library package installed that provides

alternately, maybe you need to rebuild mod_gnutls.so to have it work
with whatever modern version of libgnutls that is installed.

can you do that last find for 'libgnutls.so.*' and see what turns up?
if it's .so.28 or something else, you should rebuild mod_gnutls against
the newer version.
