Compile problems with >=gnutls-2.7.0

Reported by: Voyageur Owned by: codesquid
Priority: normal Component: FileZilla Client

Operating system type: Linux Operating system version: Gentoo


=gnutls-2.7.0 no longer defines the macro AM_PATH_LIBGNUTLS or distributes gnutls-config that filezilla uses to identify version (via libgnutls.m4).

pkg-config is the replacement that has been distributed by gnutls at least in
version 2.2.5.

I'll attach a patch to use PKG_CHECK_MODULES instead, tested with gnutls-2.7.8 and gnutls-2.6.6, please review

Current output configure with new gnutls:
checking for libgnutls-config... no
checking for libgnutls - version >= 2.0.4... no
*** The libgnutls-config script installed by LIBGNUTLS could not be found
*** If LIBGNUTLS was installed in PREFIX, make sure PREFIX/bin is in
*** your path, or set the LIBGNUTLS_CONFIG environment variable to the
*** full path to libgnutls-config.
configure: error:
*** libgnutls 2.0.4 or greater was not found. You may want to get it from
***  ftp://ftp.gnutls.org/pub/gnutls/

I've applied a modified version that falls back to libgnutls-config if the check using pkg-config fails. I'm unable to compile pkg-config on mingw/msys.

Even better! Thanks for quick commit
