What about to resolve issue ?

Michael start two mail threads:
The first (1) is with two parts a) for sed and resource file b) resource
Since I think that sed problem (if I remember well) is fixed in CVS HEAD
so I will not comment it in this email.
The patch for resource may be work (adding "-Wl,libiconv.res" solves it).
The second (2) is only for resource isn't linked. The patch from this
thread is obsolete and is part from 1.12.
I check the reported "resource issue" and confirm that problem exist.
The CVS HEAD version (makefiles with resources) is not changed I to me
problems is not resolved.
I would like to propose a solution based on libtool. To the email is
attach file libiconv-1.12.patch-RC. This file is only to show how
libtool can compile and link windows resources.
The libtool provide a macro AC_LIBTOOL_RC (v<2). This macro isn't well
documented. It has to be called before AC_PROG_LIBTOOL. For libtool
(v>=2+) it is replaced with LT_LANG([Windows Resource]) called after
LT_INIT. This macro detect resource compilers (windres for mingw) and
enable a libtool tag (--tag=RC) to work. For details search internet for
LTRCCOMPILE author Charles Wilson. So the attached file follow libtool
rules for windows resources.
Bruno what you think about this ?
If is acceptable I'm ready to propose a patch to CVS HEAD.
