Thanks for the feedback. Per coypu's reply I tried building nettle locally and that
seems to have addressed the problems I was seeing. Sorry if my PR seemed out of focus;
it wasn't obvious to me where the hogweed library was coming from, only that several
packages I had built against gnutls were no longer functioning/building.
