Minor patch for the Texinfo manual

Hello Simon,

Since I only have read access to the git repository I'm sending you this
minor patch to `gnutls.texi' (see below).

Though the manual is excellent, it contains quite a few grammatical
errors, as you probably know. In particular, there are many errors with
respect to the congruence of subject and verb in sentences.  As a native
speaker of English, it wouldn't be hard for me to correct them as I run
across them in the manual.  If you like, I'll be glad to do this.  The
easiest way would be to correct the Texinfo sources in a branch in the the
git repository, so you could check them before merging them, assuming the
copyright paperwork goes through.

Something I miss in the manual is `@deftypefn' entries and a "Data Types"
index.  I could make a start on writing them as I run across types that I
need to understand, if this would be of use to you.
