Is that really TRT?  I don't use Gnus, but smime.el seems to want a
place to keep certificates of people/organizations from which you get
MIME messages.  How probable it is to find them in the bundles
distributed by the OS?

I thought the user is supposed to collect the certificates for this
purpose, and keep them in this directory.  IOW, these are not
system-wide certificates.

gnutls-trustfiles should not be needed, except with old versions of
GnuTLS.  The library now finds and uses the system-provided bundle
automatically (and on Windows the system certificates are not kept in
a disk file).
