Gnutls is a dependency of Jami, curl is probably a dependency of a
dependency of Jami, but that's all - what is important here is that
Jami uses a modified version of pjproject, which adds support for
gnutls - that's why patching fails. What happened with curl is a
mystery for me, the only thing I know is that building curl had failed
before building pjproject-jami, so I thought the patching process
succeeded. But since it works now, it doesn't matter (at least for me).

Don't know why, but Jami seems to use a specific version of gnutls, but
if what you say is true, then it doesn't matter. I started looking for
outdated dependencies, because I thought they could be the source of
the problem.

Okay, I'll try using the latest packages for Jami then.
