Would it be possible to have a RES to OBJ mapper for GCC builds (simply
rename *.res as *.obj)? You would then have something along the lines of:

action link (gcc)
# rename *.res *.obj
# link, mapping *.res entries as *.obj

Then both rc.jam and msvc.jam can convert to RES for consistency and as far
as I understand, only gcc has this problem.
