Paul, for example.

I regularly build Emacs on old Solaris systems that lack libraries that we require for typical builds (e.g., libgif). I haven't checked whether these systems also lack libgnutls, and don't much care whether they do. If they lack it, I'll configure --with-gnutls=no; if not, not. So I'm in favor of the change that I proposed. Emacs will still need to work even if libgnutls is absent, so I'm not sure what practical effect this will have on Emacs development in the short run. But it should encourage more packagers to make sure Emacs is linked with libgnutls.
