What i missed to "dereference" the resulting string. Can i access the
path for the file-target in the rule and pass it to the manifest action?

At the moment i'm using

> flags msvc.manifest MANIFEST_FILE <embed-manifest-file> ;

Should i check in the action if the MANIFEST_FILE is empty and use the
default behavior or is it desirable to switch the called action in the
link/link.dll rule?

Best regards,
