Subject: [boost] PDB files missing from Windows binaries

First, I want to give a big thank for the streamlined availability of
precompiled Windows binaries. The "Windows binaries" link from the Boost
download webpage significantly lowers the barriers for Boost usage on the
Windows platform.

That said, there seem to be an issue with missing PDB files from the most
Boost 1.55 binaries. This makes it difficult to debug applications, since
debug information is missing.

I suspect that the reason for the missing PDBs is that the build script
doesn't install them to the target folder, which have previously been
reported on [1]. Unfortunately, there has been little response to this

Would if be possible for someone to look into this problem, and improve the
build script?


Thanks in advance,
