I've started to migrate to GnuTLS and require version 3.3. But when looking at 
the gitlab images for CI. There is only gnutls 2.x available.

Checking for gnutls >= 3.4.7                      : not found 
Checking for gnutls >= 3.0.0s                     : not found 
Checking for gnutls >= 1.4.0 and broken versions  : yes 

I think this is Ubuntu trusty (14.04) which has libgnutls28-dev (GnuTLS 
3.2.11). Either we require 3.2 and install it on autobuild or we update to a 
newer version.
