I'm not aware of such port.  I don't think the code quality of GnuTLS
is really significantly higher than the code quality of OpenSSL.

For example the recent CVE-2014-3466 seems as critical as heartbleed...

OpenSSL suffers from their previous policy of never removing (and
scarcely ever refactoring) any implemented code.  I hope this policy
will change with the significant financial support they recently received.
