Configure finds both winsock2.h and ws2tcipip.h and when it finds winsock.h, it does a "typedef int socklen_t" in gl/sys_socket.in.h but this is already defined in ws2tcpip.h. When I specified -D_WIN32_WINNT=0x0501 for Windows XP or higher support only, it compiled cleanly. It looks like a guard is needed at line 154 of gl/sys_socket.in.h - something along the lines of (this has not been tested):

 Thanks for the report. you might want to report it directly to gnulib
people[0] since in gnutls we only transparently use it.
