Yeah, that's not very pretty, and eventually I think such operations
should use some library (or possibly libgnutls_x509 which would be a
separate library from libgnutls).  But I can't recommend anything else
right now, so exporting these functions seem the simplest solution.

I've exported them now in 1.7.x.  Do you want this back-ported to the
stable branch?
