The latest GnuTLS that's available to Christoph is 3.0.9.  You cannot
possibly expect him to build against the latest GnuTLS that was not
yet been built on Windows.  So I'm not sure what exactly do you mean.

How can anyone trust a build done by a bot for a port to a platform
that is hardly if at all supported by the mainstream developers?  And
a build of critical software such as GnuTLS at that?  What if it fails
one of the tests in the test suite?

The URLs for optional DLLs are in the file README.W32 that is part of
the binary distribution.
