wincrypt.h from w32api MinGW package contains this line:
#define X509_NAME_VALUE ((LPCSTR) 6)

This conflicts with the definition from openssl.h:
  typedef gnutls_x509_dn X509_NAME;

and results in compile-time errors:
gnutls-2.10.4/libextra/gnutls_openssl.c:862:1: error: expected identifier or
'(' before 'LPCSTR'
gnutls-2.10.4/libextra/gnutls_openssl.c:862:1: error: expected ')' before
numeric constant
gnutls-2.10.4/libextra/gnutls_openssl.c:875:1: error: expected identifier or
'(' before 'LPCSTR'
gnutls-2.10.4/libextra/gnutls_openssl.c:875:1: error: expected ')' before
numeric constant

How to fix:
since wincrypt.h is included as a result of inclusion of sys/socket.h from
gnutls_int.h, the obvious fix is to add this to gnutls_int.h, after #include

#if defined(X509_NAME) && defined(__WINCRYPT_H__)
#  undef X509_NAME

Another way to fix this is to use a different name, such as GNUTLS_X509_NAME
