Yes I realize that dependencies have often dependencies themselves.
Unless there is something which proves to be impossible to compile on
other platforms, I don't see the problem.

A possible problem is that all of these extra dependencies have to be
shipped in macOS and Windows packages. If in any of these dependencies
serious bugs (e.g. security) are found, we need to ship updated packages. A
problem like this does not exist on Linux since you would typically simply
update the distribution packages (although not sure how that will work for

A potential solution could be to write a Mac-specific GIO TLS backend that
depends on macOS system libraries which can be shipped instead of the
default TLS backend that depends on gnutls.
