And that means, it is really impossible to include a *.rc file in a unit 
and distrubute the *.res file as compiled resource with your compiled unit.

Can't the searching be extended to the unit directory. It would make the 
file C:\fpc\2.2.4\units\i386-win32\fcl-base\fclel.res really useful, now 
  have to copy it to my program dir to be able to use deamonapp unit.
