gnutls 3.0.4 and mingw-w64 build issues

When building 3.0.4 with mingw-w64 (gcc 4.5.2) on a windows 7 machine, I get the following error:

In file included from gnutls-3.0.4/lib/x509/common.c:24:0:
gnutls-3.0.4/lib/x509/../gnutls_int.h:46:24: fatal error: sys/socket.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated. 

I double checked and I do not have sys/socket.h. What's the correct fix for gnutls_int.h? Removing the include altogether allowed compilation to proceed further (so perhaps the include could be guarded if needed elsewhere), but then I got:

In file included from gnutls-3.0.4/lib/accelerated/x86/sha-padlock.c:24:0:
gnutls-3.0.4/lib/accelerated/x86/../../gnutls_int.h:65:27: fatal error: gnutls/gnutls.h: No such file or directory
compilation terminated.
make[4]: *** [sha-padlock.lo] Error 1

Not exactly sure what's the best way to fix that.
