Yes, I know since I already know all of this.

But if one/a beginner works using the tutorial on "http://squeakvm.org/win32/compiling.html"
it clearly says:

   1. one can use 
       a) the file release or
       b) use the platform tree from trunk 

   2. and that one should copy the platforms/win32/build directory 
      that will work out of the box

So anything I request is that not only 1a) works in combination with 2, 
but also 1b as the page says. 

So we just need to put the stuff (*.rc files, ...) into platforms/win32/build and the tutorial is correct since even
with trunk it can work out of the box.

In the end we want people to build apps with Squeak. So we should make
even custom VM building easy - or at least so that it is aligned
with our own descriptions/tutorials. ;)
