There was one missing & (see previous message), and a lot of other problems. 
However the problems appear to mostly be one of two types:
1. Cases where we're using %d to print a ssize_t or size_t. That requires %zd 
instead. I'm confident about my fixes for those.
2. Cases where we are passing an integer to a function that expects a pointer 
(sometimes with, sometimes without a macro) to gnutls_transport_set_ptr().
This I'm less confident about, because (again) I'm not sure I understand the 
intent. Perhaps the address-of operator needs to be in the macro? Perhaps the 
macro needs to be used for the tests and examples as well?

There is something confusing (or confused) about tests/mini-eagain.c. It looks 
a bit like a work-in-progress.

Patch attached (zipped to get under the 40K limit on the list). Please provide 
review - I'm not very confident, and I got 9 out 
of 39 test failures.
