gnutls is explicitly built without IDN with the option "--without-idn" ( ). When preparing gnutls 3.5.7 the libidn dependency was added back for some reason ( ).

It looks like nothing in the package links against libidn, so the libidn dependency can be removed. If IDN functionality is desired the dependency could be changed to libidn2, since gnutls supports it.

Additional info:
* package version(s)
* config and/or log files etc.
gnutls 3.5.19-1

Steps to reproduce:
This task depends upon
