Maybe :S (/investigation of aria2 code planned).
(Through, what would be the use of using 2 different crypto backends with different wrappers ? Compatibility ?)

I assumed this for quite good reasons, but I think I will recheck this today.
(The maintainer of the Git branch of aria2 I am using said this : "It seems initialization error of gnutls(which initializes libgcrypt internally), but I've never met this before". So, even if I'm not really invested in the coding of that program, I assumed that they used gnutls to take care of the libgcrypt related scripts (I checked the code a bit, and found calls of the gnutls functions too)).
