This should be fixed in the latest releases.

Hi, thank you for reporting the issue and the patch. These assembler files are automatically generated so I avoided any change on them and I generated them for MacOSX. Does the patch below solves the issue for you? (you might need to run autoreconf).;a=commitdiff;h=080f43e1485e36addcaf4279a39848cf8b66a4df

The current gnutls 3.0.15 release contains assembly files in lib/accelerated/x86/asm which are incompatible with i386/x86_64 darwin. Minimal changes are required for these to properly compile on darwin...

1) Use the more portable .balign rather than .align (since i386/x86_64 darwin doesn't support .align > 15).
2) Add underscore to global symbols (as well as _aesni_set_encrypt_key and calls to it) using SYM macro.
3) Add TYPEF/TYPEO and SIZE macros to handle .type for @function/@object and .size on darwin as is done in the FSF gcc libitm assembly files.
4) Add and :"#ifdef _linux_" on ".section .note.GNU-stack,"",%progbits"

With these change the accelerated assembly code is compiled at i386 and x86_64 on darwin10/11 and the resulting build passes the gnutls test suite.
