I just packaged it, see

I don't have much time to maintain it though, would you like to take
maintainance of the package?

Besides, there is a problem for inclusion in Debian, and it's something
that affects the upstream project too. GNUnet is linked against the openssl
libraries whose license disallows linking of GPL code against them.

My proposed solution is that you switch to GNUtls, which although
not very mature, looks like a sane software piece.

The other (minor) problem is that the autoconf/automake stuff is not
pregenerated, and building it in the package is problematic for
building-dependencies, manual cleaning and packaging utilities differring
generated files. could you distribute it with already run?
