I'm running Debian Etch so I needed to compile GNUTls myself because it
isn't packaged for version 2.1.7.

What I did :
 - compile and install libgcrypt (1.3.1 needed by gnutls 2.1.7) :
./configure --prefix=/opt/libgcrypt-1.3.1

 - compile and install gnutls with MY libgcrypt :
./configure --prefix=/opt/gnutls-2.1.7

 - compile mod_gnutls with MY gnutls :
./configure --prefix=/usr --with-libgnutls=/opt/gnutls-2.1.7

Some commands :
# ldd /opt/gnutls-2.1.7/lib/libgnutls.so
libgcrypt.so.11 => /opt/libgcrypt-1.3.1/lib/libgcrypt.so.11 (0xb7ee9000)

# ldd /usr/lib/apache2/modules/mod_gnutls.so-0.4.1
libgnutls.so.26 => /opt/gnutls-2.1.7/lib/libgnutls.so.26 (0xb7f66000)
libgcrypt.so.11 => /usr/lib/libgcrypt.so.11 (0xb7efb000)

So, yes, there is a conflict with libgcrypt. But there is no way to
force libgcrypt path with configure script. I tried :
./configure --prefix=/usr --with-libgnutls=/opt/gnutls-2.1.7

But it doesn't solve the problem. I think configure script needs a flag
to specifie path to libgcrypt.
