  • If the user has not specified a minimum OS version (via WINVER or
    _WIN32_WINNT macros) then set it to Windows XP.

Prior to this change classic MinGW defaulted the minimum OS version
to Windows NT 4.0 which is way too old. At least Windows XP is needed
for getaddrinfo (which resolves hostnames to IPv6 addresses).

Closes #xxxx
