what exactly is hard to understand in teh word "error"?

yeah, another idiotic bullshit here, not read and not understand but 
shout "pull the latest" while a trained monkey could realize that 
"--enable-gnutls" and "gnutls not found" belong together

the only sane advive would have been "remobe any --enable you don't 
understand and in doubt replace it with --disable/--without"

if you are missing something later you can always enable whatever but 
starting with "--enable everything" is dumb, no matter what
