Try ex-client2.c against www.sf.net.
They seem to require that the client support X.509 credentials, even
though it is not used.
I ran into this as well when first starting toying with GnuTLS,
incidentally www.sf.net was one of the first real servers I tried
If someone if there is a real reason why sf.net (and others) behave
like this, it would be useful information. Possibly an OpenSSL quirk?
It seems you typically have to set up a X.509 credential with GnuTLS
even if you aren't using it.
