Maybe something lkie this would do?

    if (!hdll)
        /* You need to install winsock2 */

Principle taken from autoconf: Check for features, not for the platform, 
OS version, etc. The above tries to load winsock2 so it will only 
complain if it is really missing (checking for Windows 95 would complain 
whether winsock2 is already installed or not).
