Hi Anthony,

If you specify "res" as an include directory via the "-I"
or "--include-dir=" options, windres mistakenly assumes
this to be the output format (and issues a warning saying
to use "-J" instead). The workaround if you have such an
input directory named "res" is to specify it as "./res",
though this really shouldn't be necessary.

I am not sure if this important enough to be worth fixing. Especially there is a simple workaround as you have mentioned. I have a patch that will correct the behaviour (attached) but it has the potential to confuse users used to the old, deprecated, behaviour. If you really feel that this feature needs to be corrected in the sources please open a bug report on the binutils bugzilla system and I will make the patch official:
