[Modules] mod_gnutls "missing a Certificate file!"

I'm trying to setup an apache 2 server that offers SSL using anonymous
DH, and does not offer any certificate at all. Presently, my virtual
host configuration is as follows:

  <VirtualHost *:443>
    ServerName testbed
    GnuTLSEnable on
    GnuTLSPriorities NORMAL:+ANON-DH
    DocumentRoot /web

Unfortunately, apache 2 refuses to start, with the error:
  [GnuTLS] - Host 'testbed:0' is missing a Certificate File!

But that, of course, is exactly what I want.

If I provide a X.509 certificate to satisfy mod_gnutls, it is delivered
to clients, even if I add "-CTYPE-X.509" to the priorities. I can get
approximately the right thing by providing an OpenPGP certificate
instead - it, too, is sent to clients, but nothing in the world
understands it, so it is simply ignored and the connection falls back to
ANON-DH mode as I desire.

Please tell me there's a better way?
