The need for 'gdi32.lib'

I've a question/doubt about this passage in
Linking your application
This section applies to all "native" builds.
If you link with *static OpenSSL libraries* then you're expected to
additionally link your application with WS2_32.LIB, *GDI32.LIB*,
ADVAPI32.LIB, CRYPT32.LIB and USER32.LIB.
(* my emphasis)
Using OpenSSL in an all-static link of Wget, I always
note the line in 'wget.map':
Grepping through all of my OpenSSL sources, I see only the
above mention and one in 'Configurations\10-main.conf'.
So how/when is 'gdi32.dll' needed? Maybe it was true in the old-days?
