After invoking LT_LANG([Windows Resource]) in configure.ac, is the
Automake-generated build system meant to support compiling .rc files to
.lo and/or .o? I would expect that it should, but perhaps that expectation
is wrong?

I do not see any described support for Windows resource files in the Automake manual at https://www.gnu.org/software/automake/manual/automake.html or the Autoconf manual at https://www.gnu.org/software/autoconf/manual/autoconf.html.

What causes you to believe that there is support for a 'Windows Resource' language or specific support for Windows resource files?

The good news is that specific support is not required since it is easy to add additional tests to configure scripts and additional rules to Automake makefiles.
