Hi Zelphir,

you would probably post your question on the guix help mailing list,
because this has more to do with Guix than with Guile

That said, I happened to have your exact same need: a build of Gnutls that
carried the Guile bindings. The Gnutls provided by Debian and Ubuntu don't

I am on Ubuntu 18.04.1 too

So I built Gnutls myself

This initiative was successful. In fact I have managed to build Guix and to
use guile-hall (it uses https to download some bits)

That's a path you could go through

If you are interested in this option, there are a couple of threads I
opened on the Gnutls-help mailing list


Second (this second thread contains the exact call to the configure script
that I used):

As for allowing Guile to find the right version of Gnutls, on Ubunt setting
the LD_LIBRARY_PATH in your environment won't do (usually setting it in
your ~/.bashrc file or your ~/.profile file)

You have to put a file in /etc/ containing the path to your
custom lib directory

I put a /etc/ file containing:

I called such file nettle.conf" because Nettle is a dependency for Gnutls
but the one provided by Ubuntu is a bit too old, so I built Nettle 3.4.1
too, before building Gnutls of course

It may seem cluncky and laboroius, but it works !

I hope this helps !
