Ah, right, that's definitely from starttls.el.  This means that 1) your
SMTP server has announced that it offers STARTTLS, and 2)
`open-network-stream' has determined that don't have built-in TLS
support, and 3) that it thinks that you do have external TLS support of
some kind.

`starttls-available-p' probably returned non-nil for you, I guess?  It
would be interesting to find out why it didn't work, then.  Could you
put the gnutls-cli program back into your path and edebug through
`starttls-open-stream-gnutls' (I think) to see what goes wrong?
