Yes, I still think so.

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

This is

/usr/bin/i586-mingw32msvc-windres -V
GNU windres (GNU Binutils) 2.20
Copyright 2009 Free Software Foundation, Inc.
This program is free software; you may redistribute it under the terms of

on my system (Kubuntu 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
may vary.

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.
