Is it possible to do something similar in gnutls? It looks like there
are reasons to validate certificate with wrong order...

Placing this in context - connect with internet explorer or firefox to
https://metasploit.com/ and you will see that both of those independent
implementations see nothing wrong with the certificate chain and handle the
redirect to http://metasploit.com/ without and errors or warnings.
Implementations typically take the list of certificates as untrusted
certificates to add into the process of walking the certificate chain to a
trusted root certificate. There are pragmatic reasons for doing it this way.
From an interoperability point of view remember the adage - "Be strict in what
you generate, be liberal in what you accept"
