[This is a message I've posted to the Mozilla people
regarding windres. Comments appreciated]
Folks, we have the following uglifying construct:
$(RC) $(RCFLAGS) $(filter-out -U%,$(DEFINES)) \
$(INCLUDES:-I%=--include-dir %) $(OUTOPTION)$@ $<
$(RC) $(RCFLAGS) -r $(DEFINES) $(INCLUDES) $(OUTOPTION)$@ $<
As I mentioned already, I've already submitted a patch to windres
to accept -I for include dirs. Given that the windres maintainers
like the idea, it's just a matter of time (few days, until I get
the stupid FSF copyright assignment papers signed) until it goes in.
Idealy, I'd like to completely remove the annoying ifdef. So what's
First, the -r in the !GNU_CC case. This seems to be simply
ignored by the MS rc, for backwards compatibility:
Do we _need_ to keep it around?
Second, it seems that windres does not support the -U option.
It should, and I'm considering submitting a patch to do just that.
With that, the monster will collapse to simply:
$(RC) $(RCFLAGS) $(DEFINES) $(INCLUDES) $(OUTOPTION)$@ $<
which is so much easier on the eye.
