I suspect the Windows icon is not a great match for Mac OS X which likes
to have big sizes (48x48 or 128x128).  If you want to generate the .rsrc
file automatically, the right source probably would be the .svg file,
and doing the conversion in the Makefile probably isn't entirely
feasible.  It would need extra build dependency and rounding errors
would make it harder to achieve reproducible builds.
