Indeed, I didn't have pkg-config installed, sorry (I thought that the
packages auto-installed by mingw-get were enough already).

I've downloaded and installed that package, and the configure script
does find it:

  configure:8730: checking for pkg-config
  configure:8748: found /c/usr/bin/pkg-config
  configure:8761: result: /c/usr/bin/pkg-config

No, I didn't move any file of the libraries or packages from their
original position in the zip files.  I just tried to pass that path
(c:/usr/include/gnutls) to the compiler as a desperate attempt to
solve the configure problem.

Yes, that is what I did for the libraries and packages installed
manually:  I uncompressed the zip files under one common parent
directory (c:/usr).

In fact, after installing pkg-config, the configure script now finds
the libxml library:

  configure:13773: checking for libxml-2.0 > 2.6.17
  configure:13787: result: yes CFLAGS='-Ic:/usr/include/libxml2  '
LIBS='-Lc:/usr/lib -lxml2  '

... but it still does not find a correct gnutls library:

  configure:11727: checking for gnutls >= 2.6.6
  Package p11-kit-1 was not found in the pkg-config search path.
  Perhaps you should add the directory containing `p11-kit-1.pc'
  to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
  Package 'p11-kit-1', required by 'GnuTLS', not found
  configure:11745: result: no
  configure:11782: checking for gnutls_certificate_set_verify_function
  configure:11782: gcc -I /c/emacs/mybranch/nt/inc -std=gnu99 -o
conftest.exe -O0 -g3  -mtune=pentium4  -DGLYPH_DEBUG=1
-Ic:/usr/include/noX -Ic:/usr/include  conftest.c    >&5
  C:\Users\dani\AppData\Local\Temp\ccGHYX1K.o: In function `main':
  c:\emacs\build/conftest.c:87: undefined reference to
  collect2.exe: error: ld returned 1 exit status
  configure:11782: $? = 1
  configure: failed program was:
  | /* confdefs.h */
  | #define PACKAGE_NAME "emacs"


  | #endif
  | int
  | main ()
  | {
  | return gnutls_certificate_set_verify_function ();
  |   ;
  |   return 0;
  | }
  configure:11782: result: no

After seeing the error messages, I installed the "p11-kit" package
(from your site "http://sourceforge.net/projects/ezwinports";) and now
the configure script finally does find the gnutls library:

  configure:11727: checking for gnutls >= 2.6.6
  configure:11741: result: yes CFLAGS='-Ic:/usr/include
-Ic:/usr/include/p11-kit-1  ' LIBS='-Lc:/usr/lib -lgnutls  '
  configure:11782: checking for gnutls_certificate_set_verify_function
  configure:11782: gcc -I /c/emacs/mybranch/nt/inc -std=gnu99 -o
conftest.exe -O0 -g3 -Ic:/usr/include -Ic:/usr/include/p11-kit-1
-mtune=pentium4  -DGLYPH_DEBUG=1 -Ic:/usr/include/noX -Ic:/usr/include
 conftest.c -Lc:/usr/lib -lgnutls     >&5
  configure:11782: $? = 0
  configure:11782: result: yes

Thank you so much for your help.
