Maybe it's ok for -I and -D.
Here is the complete list of options for the resource compiler of MSVC6:

Usage:  rc [options] .RC input file
   /r    Emit .RES file (optional)
   /v    Verbose (print progress messages)
   /d    Define a symbol
   /u    Undefine a symbol
   /fo   Rename .RES file
   /l    Default language ID in hex
   /i    Add a path for INCLUDE searches
   /x    Ignore INCLUDE environment variable
   /c    Define a code page used by NLS conversion
   /w    Warn on Invalid codepage in .rc (default is an error)
   /n    Append null's to all strings in the string tables.
Flags may be either upper or lower case

I have often seen use of the /l flag.
