Actually I thought that this is workaround for possible file names conflict:
exe hello : hello.rc hello.c ;
since the first version of rc.jam registered .rc -> .obj transformation:
generators.register-standard rc.resource-compile : RC : OBJ ;
But in my case invoking rc.exe produces .res file, so we get "hello.obj" and
"hello.res" which are processed correctly:
generators.register-standard msvc.compile.rc : RC : RES : <toolset>msvc
I guess nobody make assomptions that rc.exe produces *_res.obj files so it is
BTW: The patch I send was incomplete. :-( I didn't include the following lines:
generators.register-linker msvc.link : OBJ SEARCHED_LIB STATIC_LIB
IMPORT_LIB RES : EXE RSP : <toolset>msvc ;
generators.register-linker msvc.link.dll : OBJ SEARCHED_LIB STATIC_LIB
IMPORT_LIB RES : SHARED_LIB IMPORT_LIB RSP : <toolset>msvc ;
generators.register-composing msvc.archive : OBJ RES : STATIC_LIB RSP :
Withouth them bjam won't be able to link resources to resulting dll/exe/lib. The
attached file is corrected version of the patch.

Yes, you are right. Now I just call rc in any case.
