No this is not expected to change for gnutls v1.0. However new
versions of gnupg will have this capability. 
In any case you don't have to install openssl in all your systems.
You could generate them in a simple system.

The features available for gnutls 1.0, are features that
are needed in TLS servers, and TLS-enabled web browsers. That is
certificate request generation/parsing, private key generation/parsing,
pkcs #12 packet parsing and generation, certificate parsing etc.
