Hi all,

I (perhaps foolishly) just upgrade my Ubuntu to the pangolin
version. And now my git gnus is broken. 

I'm using the "emacs-snapshot" from 

deb precise main

and emacs24 otherwise seems to work fine.

running make in the gnus directory, I get

| ...
| ...
| URLDIR="/usr/share/emacs/23.2/lisp/url/" W3DIR="no" 
lispdir="/usr/share/emacs/site-lisp/gnus" srcdir=. emacs -batch -q 
-no-site-file -l ./dgnushack.el -f dgnushack-compile
| No w3: Cannot open load file 
| No MH variant found on the system
| Wrote assistant.elc
| Wrote auth-source.elc
| Wrote binhex.elc
| Wrote canlock.elc
| Wrote color.elc
| Wrote compface.elc

and then the compilation freezes (while byte-compling "deuglify.el",
which requires 'gnus-art).

If I start emacs, visit (say) the gnus-art.el file, and M-x eval-buffer,
emacs freezes. (C-g doesn't even work -- I have to kill the emacs job).

Here is another data point. Apparently there are some issues related to
pycurl and gnutls (I didn't really understand what I read). [e.g.
the ubuntu utility


wasn't working. I followed a suggestion to fix this by compiling pycurl
against openssl rather than gnutls).

Since I know that in various ways gnus uses gnutls, it made me wonder if
this is related.

Anyone know anything about this/these issues? any suggestions?
