The current version of GnuTLS in Sage has multiple issues, not all of which will probably be solved by this ticket, but at least of subset of them will be.

  • The current version in Sage is very old.
  • There are security issues with the current version - see #7542
  • There's no spkg-check file - see #9308
  • It fails to build on AIX - see #9974
  • It fails to build on HP-UX - see #7511
  • make is used instead of $MAKE
  • -m64 is hard-coded as the compiler flag needed for 64-bit builds
  • SPKG.txt lacks the Special Update/Build Instructions section.
  • There's an incomplete list of dependencies in SKG.txt, with a remark to FIXME
