Hi Enrico!

Many thanks for this, I have added your script to the gnutls4win
repository and hooked it into the build path.  So future release will be
distributed as debian packages from the gnutls4win site too.  I created
*.deb's for 2.2.5 and 2.3.11.

May I ask that you release the script under GPLv2 or later?  I can add
the license template to the file.

Let me know if you want CVS write access so you can maintain the script
and make improvements.  For example, is it possible to sign the *.deb
