The immediate problem is with the interpretation of the "resource
string": the build system should be able to resolve it to the same
thing as the facility (e.g., std::embed) that it is used with. As
it is now, there is neither an indication of what facility each
string is for nor any specification of the resolution mechanism.
I believe you will need to add at least one of these to make this
