If I understand you correctly, one must use `DYN_NCRYPT` for WinXP/Win7, but can always use static linking when building for Vista+.

I'd suggest to drop this `AC_ARG_ENABLE` altogether. You can select whether to define `DYN_NCRYPT` depending on the `_WIN32_WINNT`.

Also could you please add a separate testcase to .gitlab-ci.yml till MinGW switches to Vista+ by default?

And last but not least it might be sensible to move `FreeLibrary` calls also under `#ifndef DYN_NCRYPT` calls.
