FWIW, I've built GnuTLS 3.0.9 natively on Windows, using MinGW and
MSYS.  I will make the resulting binaries available shortly, as soon
as I'm done testing it with Emacs.

Note that currently Emacs cannot use GnuTLS 3.0.9 on Windows, because
of a couple of minor incompatibilities in Emacs itself.  I'm working
on a solution as we speak.
