[Vortex] Question on building vortexlib on MingW

Hi, as I need some other open-source libraries and tools, I had to setup a  
MingW development environment and compile Vortex as well. I have setup  
MingW to be able to handle autoconf & configure scripts. After getting  
pkg-config etc. to run under MingW, vortexlib builds with only one problem  
in the linker step:

It seems that the configure script doesn't add the windows specific link  
libraries like ws2_32.lib if the build environment is MingW. How can I fix  

The windows makefiles expect MSVC whereas MingW uses GCC.
