[wix-users] Resolving variables in WixLibraries

The candle compiler resolves all variables not the linker. That causes
that the wixobj and wixlib files have always absolute paths to the files.

As a workaround I added the -bf switch to include the binary files in
the wixlib.

This workaround caused me to give up the idea to refer outside files.
The delayed resolving using a wixlib seems to be impossible.
