There is an AssemblyFileVersionAttribute for the 1.x profile and
its handling is almost functional. The value survives as
StringFileInfo."FileVersion" but not as VERSIONINFO.FILEVERSION.

I don't think a RC compiler is necessary. There is just a small
bug in S.Reflection.Emit.AssemblyBuilder or S.Resources.Win32Resources.
