I tried your file, and it works. :)
But there's one thing, which constraints the things a bit: The *.rc file
can't have the same name as any other C source file you are linking.
So for example this Jamfile does'nt run:

import rc ;

exe hello : hello.rc hello.c ;

IMHO this is the "normal" case, which is used in most VC projects.

Would it be possible to name the output of the resource compiler *.res
instead of *.res ? (like in my posted Jamrules file for V1)

I tried defining a new typ for resource files by the following lines. But
this doesn't seem to be enough.

generators.register-standard rc.resource-compile : RC : RES ;

declare-type NT CYGWIN : RES : res : : main ;

register-linker builtin.response-file : RES OBJ SEARCHED_LIB STATIC_LIB
