Found it I think. gnutls_free is a pointer of type gnutls_free_function,
so the value returned from GetProcAddress is a data pointer, not a
function address. Something like the following patch appears to work
i.e. no longer crashes with the recipe above.

If this is the right fix then we will need to add e.g. DEF_DLL_DATA and
LOAD_DLL_DATA macros for runtime import of data (and an equivalent to
get_proc_addr to use the right types for runtime data imports).

The patch also has "#undef gnutls_free" because gnutls.h also defines
gnutls_free as a macro, if GNUTLS_INTERNAL_BUILD is defined. For some
reason the MSYS2 maintainers add a patch to their build to define
GNUTLS_INTERNAL_BUILD unconditionally: see 0001-add-missing-define.patch
at <https://github.com/msys2/MINGW-packages/tree/master/mingw-w64-gnutls>.
