Hi Avner,

We never supported 'gcrypt-only'. We always required GnuTLS, just some
very long time ago we tried to include parts of the GnuTLS code with
MHD. However, that version never worked well with HTTPS/TLS, so it is
definitively not advisable to go there.  If you cannot build GnuTLS, you

1) Ask the GnuTLS mailinglist for help,
2) Disable TLS support for MHD if you do not need it; or,
3) Put MHD-logic behind a reverse proxy (i.e. Apache) that
   does support TLS

Happy hacking!
