"windowsResources" is very Microsoft-specific, and there is no dependency on cygwin.

We put this in to allow for packaging of things like icon files, etc. on Microsoft Windows targets.

"rc" is the Microsoft Resource Compiler.

I know that I have a number of programs that depend on this package.

I haven't looked at your change yet; I just saw the commit log message.

Modified files:
	cm3/m3-sys/windowsResources/src/: winRes.tmpl 

Log message:
	This file uses rc for backend mode 0 and windres otherwise.
	Change it to also use rc backend mode C.
	This all seems wrong.
	windres is a Cygwin tool.
	rc is a Microsoft tool.
	windres probably works "cross", though that is probably rare.
	This should probably be lifted all the way up to the config files.
