secur32.lib on Windows?

This is a small snippet from Markus Moeller's rather large pending patch for
GSSAPI SOCKS5 auth, but I'm curious about the necessity of this change:

-LINKLIBS = $(LINKLIBS) wsock32.lib wldap32.lib^M
-LINKLIBS_DEBUG = $(LINKLIBS_DEBUG) wsock32.lib wldap32.lib^M
+LINKLIBS = $(LINKLIBS) wsock32.lib wldap32.lib secur32.lib^M
+LINKLIBS_DEBUG = $(LINKLIBS_DEBUG) wsock32.lib wldap32.lib secur32.lib^M

What is secur32.lib and why do we need it with the GSSAPI change? Why didn't
we need it before? Will it have any drawbacks for those who don't care about
SOCKS support?
