Which is already done in crypto/bio/b_sock.c. Did you look into the code?

LoadLibrary? That's nothing new and already used in crypto/dso/dso_win32.c.

ws2_32.dll exists on all systems starting with Windows
95 OSR2, but that doesn't mean the IPv6 functions are available. On
Windows 2000, IPv6 is only available if wship6.dll is installed.
