I've just comitted rc.jam with the change described above. So resource
compiler is supported by V2. Thanks to Andre!

BTW, do I understand correctly that on windows it's common to produce
*.res file from *.rc, not .obj from .rc --- as we have now? Andre, can you
clarify why you choose to create .obj? Was the intention to make the same
Jamfile work on FreeBSD?
