    configure: Don't explicitly add -ladvapi32 to linker flags · 4319ab8d

    This flag was originally not added because of crypto functions,
    but together with -lssp in 460879.
    Advapi32 is one of the libs that are automatically linked in by
    the mingw compiler/linker driver.
    Adding it manually here causes issues with linking libupnp_plugin.la
    with lld. Libupnp contains md5 functions, and advapi32 also contains
    functions with the same names. If -ladvapi32 is specified early in the
    link command, before -lupnp, the conflicts arise. (The same conflicts
    don't occur with binutils ld though, since it searches libraries
    in a slightly different order than lld.)
    The conflict can be avoided by fixing one inconsistency in mingw-w64
    though, but then libupnp will use MD5 functions from advapi32.dll
    (with an ABI not guaranteed to match the ones it expected) instead
    of the ones bundled in libupnp.
