gnutls is an encryption library very like openSSL. It's not clear why 
configure would be trying to use it. Is it possible that you recently 
updated a package that Scribus uses, and the updated version has a .po 
file (for pkg-config) that tells Scribus to try to link against gnutls 
when linking to it?

Of course, if that were the case I'd expect the package in question to 
have also pulled gnutls onto the system in the update.

You might want to post the generated Makefile and Makefile.in from the 
directory where the build failed, along with your config.log, to a new 
bug on bugs.scribus.net .
