AFAIK, windres is available for lots of other platforms. If you have to install
some package, that shoud not really surprise a developer?
I would assume that FPC just tries to call a resource compiler on all platforms
and fails with some error message if it isn't available?

If so, I wouldn't worry too much about having our own resource compiler. The RC
script language is actually quite complex, and there'd be next to no benefit to
reinventing the wheel.
