Apparently this is because of some patent issue, see this posting and its follow-ups:
http://lists.gnupg.org/pipermail/gnutls-dev/2005-January/000812.htmlI really think this should at least be documented. Nothing in /usr/share/doc/gnutls-1.6.3 mentions it. The functions ought to be removed from the header file if they are not in the library.
There are questions about whether the SRP code really infringes on any patent. And as an example Debian's GnuTLS ships with the SRP functions intact.
