Comment 1 Tomas Mraz 2009-05-12 09:49:56 EDT
The OpenSSL license conflicts with the GPL license of vpnc. There is a gnutls patch in the works.
Comment 2 Bernhard Schuster 2009-05-12 10:27:16 EDT
Thx, I am sorry, but I didn't know about the license issues untill 3 seconds ago I started compiling it myself and therefore read it within the make file.
Comment 3 daniel.scharon 2010-03-24 10:20:42 EDT
actually, this bug is solved in the latest SVN snapshot of vpnc (0.5.3r449), where GnuTLS support is already built in. Gentoo and Debian (unstable) are already shipping this version.
