But for TLS support, there is only "no" displayed next to "checking for GNUTLS", without any additional information, so I have no clues at all to guess what's missing. Could you give me some more of these last ones so I can go forward?

You need to check config.log, the parts relating to GNUTLS.
It should say (in more or less cryptic messages) exactly why it says “no” there.
Note that only one of OpenSSL and GNUTLS can be used, but if your issue is missing functionality that should not be the issue.
