I have run my tests and they work fine.

I tried this, along with the removal of [ cast ... ] to the PCH stuff. I
also needed to add a generator for H and one for HPP to allow stdafx.h or
pch.hpp as your header. This worked fine except for MC which gave an
ambiguity error:

   MC -> RC -> OBJ
     \-> H -> PCH -> OBJ

which I don't know how to solve :( (hence the cast).
