As I wrote in another post the gcc linker might accept RES files if
the option --output-format=coff is used when calling windres.

I'm going to test it but with the latest CVS version I can't build a
single project with msvc because of error messages like

C:/Development/Boost-Build/build\targets.jam:1157: in construct from
module object(exe-target-class)@1

D:\TBLib\boost-build.jam:1: in module scope from module

I also have a local change in rc.jam because resource file scanning
doesn't always work correctly. I've never submitted a patch. What is
the best way to do it?
