[libvirt] [PATCHv3] build: avoid -lgcrypt with newer gnutls



https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=951637

Newer gnutls uses nettle, rather than gcrypt, which is a lot nicer
regarding initialization.  Yet we were unconditionally initializing
gcrypt even when gnutls wouldn't be using it, and having two crypto
libraries linked into libvirt.so is pointless, but mostly harmless
(it doesn't crash, but does interfere with certification efforts).

There are three distinct version ranges to worry about when
determining which crypto lib gnutls uses, per these gnutls mails:
2.12: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gnutls-devel/2011-03/msg00034.html
3.0: http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/gnutls-devel/2011-07/msg00035.html

If pkg-config can prove version numbers and/or list the crypto
library used for static linking, we have our proof; if not, it
is safer (even if pointless) to continue to use gcrypt ourselves.

* configure.ac (WITH_GNUTLS): Probe whether to add -lgcrypt, and
define a witness WITH_GNUTLS_GCRYPT.
* src/libvirt.c (virTLSMutexInit, virTLSMutexDestroy)
(virTLSMutexLock, virTLSMutexUnlock, virTLSThreadImpl)
(virGlobalInit): Honor the witness.
* libvirt.spec.in (BuildRequires): Make gcrypt usage conditional,
no longer needed in Fedora 19.

v3: configure logic is enhanced to try harder to get the
right answer for gentoo.  I tested with Fedora 19 and RHEL 6,
but need feedback from a gentoo tester before this can go in.
