Description

the new version information in the file properties is inconsistent with the old 
stuff found in some other files:
check the new fileversioninfo in fx "jpeg3250.dll" and compare it to 
fileversioninfo found in "npnul32.dll" or "SETUP.EXE"

i can't seem to find the jpeg3250.dll file, but I'm guessing that the one that
doesn't say 0.0.0.0 has a RESFILE declared in makefile.win and/or Makefile.in...
RESFILE will override the auto-version stuff.

in inconsistency is because the versioninfo of fx npnul32.dll is defined in:
http://lxr.mozilla.org/seamonkey/source/modules/plugin/samples/default/windows/npnul32.rc#75

all the other dll's get theire versioninfo from the perl script

ok.  the fix is simple:  cvs rm the .rc file, and remove the RESFILE line in the
makefiles.

however, *whether* we want to do this isn't certain... perhaps there's a reason
why we're versioning these with specific version numbers.

um...plugins need that rc file for meta data.

so the autoversion .rc file won't do?  if so, then we need to keep it there and
mark this won'tfix.

also need to check on setup.exe's .rc file.

The version info is probably not important to us but we NEED the other data in
the rc file. Is the script capable of merging rc files?
