I think this is an error easy to understand for people that speak a

You can't install gkrellm2 with both GNUTLS and OPENSSL options at the 
same time!

Do make config and disable GNUTLS (it's the default thus I assume you 
probably enabled it)

You may need to write a ~/.conkyrc to run properly conky. Please read 
conky. It's easy to understand or search for conky examples on the web.
