Hi GnuTLS maintainers. It seems that strongSwan (wrongly) missed a
build-dep on libgcrypt*-dev, and started to FTBFS just recently.

I'm unsure why it happened just know, I guess some -dev package was
depending on the libgcrypt11-dev package.

Now, an easy fix would be to add either libgcrypt*-dev package to
build-deps, but now I'm a bit unsure which version to add.

Would it be possible to summarize the reasons we have both in the
archive and if there's a reason not the use the most recent one?

Thanks in advance, and regards,
