Hum... more like a compilation problem with binutils and windres. I'll
should have dig deeper on this. I will look further :)

"First, windres supports any conversions between .rc, .res, .o
files, whereas wrc supports only .rc -> .res. It would be
interesting (from the Winelib point of view) to also support
.rc and .res -> .o. The other transformations supported by
windres (.o -> .res -> .rc) are not as interesting, as they
are not used in the build process. "
I would like to know if you still plan this. I mean do you plan to use
wrc instead of windres?

Ok, thanks a lot, it seems encouraging ;)
