Due to kernel32 exporting many of the same functions as advapi32 in Win 7 but
not in prior Windows versions, executables that link to those functions in
kernel32 cause entry point errors on older Windows releases.

Currently it uses:

-luser32 -lkernel32 -ladvapi32 -lshell32

Kai Tietz has proposed:

-lshell32 -ladvapi32 -luser32 -lkernel32
