It tells you to make sure you have all the development packages
installed, and I think it's the accurate advice.  People build Emacs
with that version of GnuTLS without any problems.

If you want help in solving this problem, please submit a bug report
with all the details, including at least the configure command and the
full log of the build from the configure step till the segfault.
config.log would also help.
