I think function pointers seem like the simplest solution.

Compiling gnutls in windows is something unknown to me. I
cross-compile gnutls using mingw64 in a Debian system (see the
cross.mk makefile).

However, I'd suggest to use the Orwell dev-cpp (the original has been
quite inactive for many years). I had released some devpaks for orwell
dev-cpp but they are pretty old right now. You can generate them (in a
Linux system) from the gnutls repository using cross.mk as well (and
the devpak rule).
