_gnutls_ now uses the central certificate store
The _gnutls_ packages provide the GNU Transport Layer Security (GnuTLS) library, which implements cryptographic algorithms and protocols such as SSL, TLS, and DTLS. With this update, GnuTLS uses the central certificate store of Red Hat Enterprise Linux through the _p11-kit_ packages. Certificate Authority (CA) updates, as well as certificate black lists, are now visible to applications at runtime.
Description of problem: Centralize certificate verification and management. Currently NSS and openssl use p11-kit indirectly (though compat modules, or exported files), thus access centralized trust management. However, GnuTLS doesn't. So the scope of this enhancement is restricted on adding p11-kit support to GnuTLS in order to access the centralized trust management in Fedora/RHEL.
Support for the p11-kit trust store has been added in gnutls 3.3.0, thus only a rebase is needed.
With the rebase of both gnutls and p11-kit, this fix is a simple configuration change in gnutls (i.e., compile with the flag --with-default-trust-store-pkcs11="pkcs11:" as in Fedora 21)
