Hi !

Sorry for the late, but hopefully not too late, bug report ;-))

Revision 40008 of tools/common.jam broke "rc" support on linux.
Previously, Boost.Build used to do: (gcc.jam lines 193 ff)

 #~ If we can't find an RC compiler we fallback to a null RC compiler
 #~ that creates empty object files. This allows the same Jamfiles
 #~ to work across the board. The null RC uses the assembler to create
#~ the empty objects, so configure that.

Revision 40008 broke this behaviour because there seems to be no test
for this :-((
I've got a test case attached which will bail out on linux. (It won't
compile on NT because the rc is empty :-)) See error.txt in archive for

I'd like to revert 40008 if there is no better solution.
