Christoph has been doing that, I think, so we can rely on his binaries.
Christoph, can you add a GnuTLS build step to your Emacs build for
Windows, so the latest GnuTLS version can be used on that platform? We
had a long conversation about this and at least for now it seems to be
the best approach (and we agreed it would not be a task for the core
Emacs developers). If you prefer, I can set up a BuildBot to produce
the GnuTLS DLLs for you.
