Can't build with mingw+visualstudio+scons+python+w32 (FUCKING w32 SHIT)

I have the WtsApi32.lib and .dll with the right syms but gcc says:

C:\src> scons
scons: Reading SConscript files ...
scons: done reading SConscript files.
scons: Building targets ...
gcc -o siaynoq.exe -mwindows main.o siaynoq.o hotkeys.o tiling.o tools.o -lwtsapi32 -lshell32
siaynoq.o(.text+0x76f):siaynoq.c: undefined reference to `WTSRegisterSessionNotification_AT_8'
siaynoq.o(.text+0x7c5):siaynoq.c: undefined reference to `WTSRegisterSessionNotification_AT_8'
siaynoq.o(.text+0xe16):siaynoq.c: undefined reference to `WTSUnRegisterSessionNotification_AT_4'
hotkeys.o(.text+0x475):hotkeys.c: undefined reference to `LockWorkStation'
tiling.o(.text+0xfc):tiling.c: undefined reference to `RealGetWindowClass'
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
scons: *** [siaynoq.exe] Error 1
scons: building terminated because of errors.

If i remove the wtsapi32.lib it says:

D:\GNU\mingw\bin\ld.exe: cannot find -lwtsapi32
collect2: ld returned 1 exit status
scons: *** [siaynoq.exe] Error 1
scons: building terminated because of errors.

If I strings wtsapi32 I can find the undefined syms i can't understand
how all the .lib noise works ://

any idea? build? patch? ...

btw i had to hardcode some defines, coz including wtsuser32.h the build crashes in
the same way.

So i had to add these lines into src/siaynoq.c

#include <windows.h>
#include <WinUser.h>
#define WTS_SESSION_LOCK 0x4
