To make sure that I understand things right:
- The new utility is supposed to be invoked as 'fpc -FR<name> <all other 
- The new utility has nothing to do with -FC switch;
- 'windres' name is still hardcoded within the utility.

I probably should support win64/gorc, too. What will be the proper way 
to do it: recognize gorc switches in the commandline, or compile a 
separate executable, or whatever else? Is gorc executable available for 
crosscompiling from win32?

I shall test it, and report separately.
