I tried installing 1.2.9 on my system, the install was apparently successful 
but I hit the same problems.
Everything, including the examples and test programs in the tarball, fails with 
the same error as detailed in my first message. I've since moved towards 
OpenSSL for the IRCd module, but I, or a friend working on the same project, 
would be very interested in GnuTLS if we could get anything to work. The API is 
much nicer than OpenSSL's.
So is there anything you can suggest for why everything is failing as it is? :)



I will live forever, or die trying.
