I checked src/misc/tls.c and there is no reference to 
so there is no problem during compile. 

The check for this function is in configure.ac:

    [AC_CHECK_LIB(gcrypt, gcry_control,
        [AC_CHECK_LIB(gnutls, gnutls_certificate_verify_peers2,
          [have_gnutls="yes"],[old_gnutls="yes"], ${gnutls_LIBS})])],,

Besides adding -lz to the libraries used as in the patch I sent I have
no idea how to rewrite this check.
