by default, the header file windows.h includes a *lot* os other header
files, which are almost always useless, except in some cases of course. It
improves the compilation speed, especially with MSYS/MinGW.

There is a way to reduce the number of header files included by windows.h:

# include <windows.h>

You can look at windows.h to see what the macro WIN32_LEAN_AND_MEAN disable.

As far as I can see, 2 files are using windows.h in gnutls/src: crypt.c and

Maybe it is worth adding this macro in those files
