Oops! There are two problems about it.

First is that recourse file support appeared after 1.30 was released.
Second is that even current version of rc.jam does not have 'init' rule.
I've just fixed the latter problem.

So, to use resource compiler you can
1. Get CVS version, or
2. Use Boost.Build V2 Milestone 4. In this case you should write "import rc ;"
instead of "using rc ;", as a workaround.

Information on downloading M4 and accessing CVS version can be found at
