After thinking a bit more about this, I think we should not link the rc
file against the library. We also don't link it against the plugin

The rc file contains settings that the resulting binary is an executable
and it includes also the geany.exe.manifest. Both do not apply to the
library. So it is actually wrong to use that rc file for the library.

If there are no objections, I will remove linking the rc file against
the library in Waf.
