Hi Andreas,

That was mostly what I was expecting. Well the configure identifies that 
my system is missing the package, although a better error message could 
be nice. Some of the others like ldap, suggest some packages to install. 
I would suggest rearranging the code so that the conf.fatal is triggered 
and make sure to include the minimum version in that user message.

However, libcups2-dev appears to rely on libgnutls-dev and installing 
libgnutls28-dev removes it (and reinstalling libcups2-dev will remove 

I also originally thought gnutls_x509_privkey_import_rsa_raw2 was 
usable, but there was an odd linkage error. That might be on my end but 
it's not really important if the requirement is higher.

I presume the question will be supporting Centos 6, and regarding 
impact, this would probably have to be fielded to others.
