Hi Sergio,

You're right and I hadn't noticed because everything worked fine. Here's 
an exercept from samba's config.log (I just refreshed the packages for 4.8.11):

Checking for gnutls >= 3.4.7
/usr/bin/pkg-config "gnutls >= 3.4.7" --cflags --libs gnutls
Requested 'gnutls >= 3.4.7' but version of GnuTLS is 3.3.29
You may find new versions of GnuTLS at http://www.gnutls.org/
not found

Checking for gnutls >= 3.0.0s
/usr/bin/pkg-config "gnutls >= 3.0.0" --cflags --libs gnutls
-I/usr/include/p11-kit-1  -lgnutls

Is it possible that an AD/DC builds and works fine with gnutls-3.3.x?
I admit I didn't pay attention to that issue when I confirmed some of spec 
files settings from https://samba.tranquil.it/centos7/samba-4.8.8-srcrpm.

That spec file shows:

BuildRequires: gnutls-devel >= 3.3.26

RHEL7 (and most likely centos7 too) currently includes this:

# rpm -q gnutls
