[gnutls-devel] [PATCH 2/4] Set _WIN32_WINNT to 0x600, at least with some MinGW versions ncrypt.h checks this define to be at least 0x600.

merely #including ncrypt.h doesn't link against ncrypt.dll, nor does it
add a library dependency. For that -lncrypt would be needed as linker
argument and one of the exported symbols would need to be used.

GnuTLS already loads ncrypt.dll dynamically, nonetheless it still needs
to include ncrypt.h in order to use the constants defined in it.
