I suppose even in that case there should be some checking. If you're going
to invoke windres under wine, then it should be possible to verify that
is the valid command.

Then, when 'windres' is not found, user won't see any warning. It might be
possible to issue the warning only when --debug-configuration is specified.
The reasoning would be that lack of 'windres' is less fatal cirsumstance
then lack of 'gcc'.
I'd be happy with any option, in fact, as soon as we don't get warning on
