mingw: load system libraries the recommended way
When we access IPv6-related functions, we load the corresponding system library using the `LoadLibrary()` function, which is not the recommended way to load system libraries. In practice, it does not make a difference: the `ws2_32.dll` library containing the IPv6 functions is already loaded into memory, so LoadLibrary() simply reuses the already-loaded library. Still, recommended way is recommended way, so let's use that instead. While at it, also adjust the code in contrib/ that loads system libraries.
