Stick the following in the config file (or .htaccess).

Redirect permanent /robots.txt http://www.domain.com/ressources.php?res=robots.txt

if I would use mod_rewrite .. what would be the consequences? which code is returned to a search engine when it calls robots.txt ? a 301 ? is that better then what happens when I use mod_rewrite?

I'd say mod_rewrite cannot be detected...
