Interesting. I didn't know it.

I thought that the .rc scanner will detect all included files and call
INCLUDES and/or DEPENDS so that .rc will depend on the found files.
Isn't it enough?

It is all about .idl files support. I posted it some time ago and I'm
going to repost fixed patch soon. It will add an ability to process .idl
(MS IDL) files using midl.exe. Among other things the tool produces .tlb
file which may be included into resources (.rc).
