I looked into windres options and found that the output format depends
on the file extension. It can be overwritten by using the option
--output-format (--output-format=coff in this case). I don't know,
however, if this helps to use msvc.jam and rc.jam together.

I got it to work by removing the duplicate registration of type RC and
changing the line

generators.register-standard rc.resource-compile : RC : OBJ(%_res) ;


generators.register-standard rc.resource-compile : RC : OBJ(%_res) :
<toolset>gcc ;

which isn't really a solution but works for now in my case.
