The thread contains my example using mingw's resource compiler.

on my system (Kubuntu 12.04.0.1) and can be specified as
using gcc : 4.4~msvc
: # compiler
: # options
windres had some limitations when I last used it on windows, so your mileage
And you can always put "<rc>yourfancyscript" in there and use this to output a
dummy file or do anything you want.
I remember that the resource contains dll/exe version information, so the
chances are that you really need it one way or the other.
