Except it's done wrong. If I call $(RECONF) on my system I end up with a 
replacement variable (GNULIB_OVERRIDES_WINT_T) missing in gnulib and I 
have no idea why it works when I don't do reconf and it does it my 
itself when realizing configure.ac has changed.

Anyway I've seen cleaned versions of the patches for gnutls and gnulib 
upstream. We got some UWP stuff merged in gnutls before so there is hope.
