the general pattern on debian-derived systems (including ubuntu) is that
the basline library packages (e.g. libgnutls26) provide only running
code, but no development headers or configuration utilities.

If you want to build code against a given library, you'll need its
associated -dev package.

So you should make sure you have the libgnutls-dev package installed:

  sudo apt-get install libgnutls-dev

(side note: there's no reason to use sudo here -- your build was running
as your (non-priviliged) user, so if a non-privileged find couldn't turn
up anything relevant, that's sufficient to answer the question you're
asking;  running find with superuser privileges doesn't provide any more
useful information; it's better to avoid elevating privileges if you can
do so.)
