attached should be a simple test case.. The .c file is almost an Hello 
World (in Windows Programming style), and I took it from the web. Th RC 
file is unrelated and consist of a few lines.

$ tar -xvf test_case.tar.bz2
$ cd test_case
$ ./
/usr/bin/ld: wikibook_example.out: .rsrc merge failure: corrupt .rsrc 

All is very simple. The issue seems to come out fro the RC file usage.
