OK - I kind of assumed that if gnutls was "built-in" it was already
available, but I guess that's not what "built-in" means?

Anyway, I downloaded it and installed it under c:\ezwinports, and then
added c:\ezwinports\bin to the Windows path.

Now running gnutls-available-p returns t, but I still get the "Must
issue a STARTTLS command first" message when I try to send mail.  Is
there something else I have to configure?
