Hi, following your advices and ideas, I managed to solve this problem :-) 
*Explanation*: I've installed pkg-config to make the tests you were telling me 
to make, and a while after that, I tested again "./configure+make" for the 
twelveth time and saw big changes! When the tool wasn't there, there was a "no" 
next to "checking for pkg-config", and, instead of explaining that it was a 
fatal error and why, configuration script tries to detect GnuTLS libs just 
after that... but without pkg-config it can't occur since the test needs 
it("different ifs in the gnutls section" as you wrote)! And, here again, 
instead of showing something relevant, there's only this "no" and nothing in 
the log! I noticed another minor change: now there's "p11-kit1" in the wall 
parameters displayed hundreds of times during compilation.

I don't understand very well. Could disabling it be a way to go through this 
problem? Could it be done with "--disable-decoder=DECODER" and if so, what 
exactly should I write instead of "DECODER"? "QTRLE"?

Sincerely, Stephane Ascoet
