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

Hi list!

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
against msvc.jam.
(see ticket #8889

This (and a tiny script to collect all generated PDBs into the library
directory) got me there:

boost_log_setup-vc120-mt-1_54.dll 1.158.656
boost_log_setup-vc120-mt-1_54.lib 24.244
boost_log_setup-vc120-mt-1_54.pdb 123.055.104

libboost_log-vc120-mt-gd-1_54.pdb 8.114.176

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.
