Not just the documentation, the code as well needs fixing.

I cannot see how this could be intentional, because it makes it
impossible to distinguish between GnuTLS 2.x and no GnuTLS at all.  So
I fixed this on the release branch.

If Juri (or someone else) has GnuTLS 2.x, please test and close the
bug if it is indeed fixed.

Thanks.
