The OpenSSL license conflicts with the GPL license of vpnc. There is a gnutls patch in the works.
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.
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.
