It's not really necessary. For Waf, I just added it to the binary where
it is necessary and kept it for the library.
The rc file serves two main purposes:
- add the icon to the binary
- add versioning information to the binary (e.g. in the file properties
dialog in the Details tab)

While especially the icon is important for the binary, I guess the rc
file is just nice to have for the library but not necessary.
But I agree we should do the same for Waf and autotools, either link it
or don't link it.
I don't mind which way to go.

Noticed this too but yeah, I think too this isn't a big problem. Ideally
Waf should detect that it built the file already for another target and
just use the built object.
