For the Windows port, having libgnutls-26.dll unavailable is not a
failure; it's entirely parallel to the non-Windows ports being built
withouth GnuTLS support. Checking that the library it is available
should be totally equivalent (modulo the moment it happens) to a
feature check or (if (fboundp 'whatever) ...).
