Subject: [boost] [build][msvc] create PDBs

For various reasons I always preferred to have debug info separate from
the binaries. Unfortunately, emitting debug info to PDBs doesn't work so
well, in particular when it comes to static libs and precompiled
headers. Because of that I tried to rectify this and created a patch
(see ticket #8889 https://svn.boost.org/trac/boost/ticket/8889)
This (and a tiny script to collect all generated PDBs into the library
directory) got me there:
Boost.Log was chosen for exhibition only.
All files were built with debug-symbols=on debug-store=database.
Link-time code generation was enabled for all release builds, too.
May be, someone finds this helpful.
