[Help-gnutls] windows startup still slow -- what to do?

I've been [reluctantly] porting some software from Linux to Windows
and I was happy to discover that GnuTLS had a nice Windows installer.
After getting things mostly working, I started looking into why
startup was so slow and discovered that gnutls_global_init() takes
maybe five seconds to run on this machine. (Laptop, "Core Duo T2400 @
1.83GHz" says the System control panel.)
I've read over the old threads on this phenomenon, so I appreciate
that the problem is at least known. My questions are:
- Is this something that's likely to be ever fixed? If so, can I help out?
- Otherwise, what's the best way to temporarily work around this?
(http://josefsson.org/gnutls4win/ links to
http://www.securitypunk.com/libgcrypt/ but that site appears to be
down.) I suppose I can deal with a very slow startup on Windows with
the final release, but while I'm debugging it's killing me to have to
wait each time I run...
