EZ> Ted, could you please look into this?

This function was deprecated in GnuTLS 2.99.

3.1.10 is the latest.  I used 2.x when I did the GnuTLS support, but by
now 3.x is much more widely distributed so I think we can switch to it.
Fortunately, the changes will be minimal because the API hasn't changed
significantly AFAIK.  So this is mostly a policy decision.

At least in Ubuntu 12.10, GnuTLS 3.x is the default.  I know it's
already what people use on W32 and MacOS X.  What about other platforms?
Any concerns?

This would also be a good time to enable SSL certificate verification by
default.  We said we'd wait until 24.3 is out to make that change.
