I think I've recently straightened out the whole PDB mess. Please see
recent postings on the jamboost list for details. The only question that
might remain is whether I've chosen the right default behavior. Right
now the default is to embed debug information in the object files (/Z7)
and only generate a .pdb as the result of linking a dll or executable.
The other behavior is of course selectable via <debug-store>database.
