  I just got in trouble with an older gnutls trying to build on
RHEL-5 too:

In function `virNetTLSContextCheckCertBasicConstraints':
/u/veillard/libvirt/src/rpc/virnettlscontext.c:149: undefined reference
to `gnutls_x509_crt_get_basic_constraints'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

  Maybe we should check for that specific entry point in configure and
disable that part of the cert checking if not available,

  opinion ?
