Installing GnuTLS on Emacs

GnuTLS is needed for adding the `https` URL of MELPA to the package archive source list:


(add-to-list 'package-archives '("melpa" . "https://melpa.org/packages/") t)

Without this, the message buffer will say:


(Emacs) GnuTLS library not found

To install GnusTLS, from ezwinports on SourceForge, download `gnutls*bin.zip` and within its `bin` directory, copy all the dll files to the Emacs `bin` directory which don't already exist.
