Sorry for the delay in replying, feedback below. I could not get a
running Emacs 26 with GNUTLS working also.

It would certainly work as is if the gnutls include files where placed
in guess-estimatable directories relative to pkg-config, but I placed
them in another directory in order not to mix up my mingw directory with
files from another source (namely gnutls.org), so I had to comment out
the prefix setting for the other settings to be taken as edited in
gnutls.pc and not replaced by guess-estimates, and I also edited the
other settings to point at the right place.

I had also to make another hack : when I took the gnutls windows port
from gnutls.org, the include files are in lib/includes, I had to move
this to includes/gnutls because the Emacs source makes some

 #include <gnutls/...>

directive with an explicit gnutls/... superdirectory.

So, OK, it's my fault, I should have taken the EZwinports and placed it
into my mingw.

I can't tell why I need this. But if you explain me how to debug the
compile crash due to lack of memory, then we may know more about it.

Please note that I have been using a 32 bit compilation, while I am on a
64bit machine.

I could make it work. The issue was that only only you need the
directory (call it dir_1) where the DLL is in the PATH envvar, but also
you need that no other directory (call it dir_2) containing conflicting
DLL be in the PATH envar *before* dir_1.

I had a dir_2 containing other libgmp-10.dll and libp11-kit-0.dll and
that was sufficient to make it fail on execution. This was due to that I
had tried in the first place to use gnutls-cli.exe, so I had a
gnutls-cli.exe installed dir_2 which was using incompatible DLL compared
to that in dir_1.

Once again, OK it's my fault, I should have blindly followed the
instructions in

  (info "(emacs-gnutls) Help For Users")

and placed Eli's EZwinPorts into the same bin directory as emacs.exe,
but instead I took the latest from gnutls.org and placed it in another
directory. Sorry for I am desperately prone not to follow instructions
