#8889: Boost.Build MSVC fix building PDBs
 Reporter: Daniela Engert <dani@…> | Owner: vladimir_prus

Milestone: To Be Determined | Component: build
  Version: Boost 1.54.0 | Severity: Problem
 Keywords: |
 Currently emitting debug information to PDBs works with a rather limited
 set of conditions only. Most importantly, static libs can't be compiled if
 debug-store=database is requested. The attached patch rectifies this

 The hardest part was to get around problems with precompiled headers. I
 got it eventually.

 What's still missing:
  * port the changes over to msvc.py. Python is completely out of my
 knowledge domain so I decided to stay away from this file.
  * No matter what I tried, I found no way to move the generated PDBs from
 the build directories to the output directory alongside the libraries.
