Windres problem with Boling book example

One of the examples in the Boling book has lines in the resource file
that look like this :

aboutbox DIALOG discardable 10, 10, 132, 40

[The "Boling book" is Programming Microsoft Windows CE .net, third
edition, by Douglas Boling.]

The problem is that binutils's windres appears to expect all the
keywords such as DISCARABLE to be in upper case.

A trivial fix for src/binutils/binutils/rclex.l is below. Obviously this
fixes only that keyword, I'd expect all of them need to be treated in
the same way.

This looks pretty lame, there must be a reason why this isn't
implemented like this to begin with. Does anyone see a reason ?
