Right, got it working after reading up a bit.  Apparently, it was
simple as setting the following

(setq gnutls-log-level 1) ;; just in case it borks for some sites
(setq gnutls-trustfiles '("c:/cygwin/usr/ssl/certs/" 

BTW, what is the recommended approach to 1) get the latest trustfiles
2) keep it updated?

Now it works with the version in ezwinports\bin directory and I was
able to use eww and gnus without any issues.

After adding ezwinports\bin to the system PATH, the only additional
change I had to add was

;; need this for using cygwin.
(setq cygwin-mount-cygwin-bin-directory "C:/cygwin/bin/")

With that, I could remove all the exec-path and getenv PATH
modifications in .Emacs that you warned against.

Thanks for the help.  Appreciated.
