IMO, it would make sense to have a configure switch to disable securetransport and enable gnutls if someone wishes. And for that, AFAIK we would need to touch configure.ac.

Should I send a patch with autoenabled securetransport (with or without a configure switch), and disable gnutls at the same time? Note that by disabling gnutls we would loose the tls server functionality for now.

Felix, any opinion on these from you?
