Attached there is an untested patch, though it should work, that detect
mingw platform and add ws2_32.lib. If you take a look into the patch
you'll see there is a change at the configure.ac file and a reference in
all Makefile.am files to get the value installed on ADDITIONAL_LIBS.

Once applied the patch you'll have to run autogen.sh to refresh autoconf
