Only in V2:

stage dist : my_exe : <traverse-dependecies>yes
<include-type>EXE <include-type>LIB ;

as documented at

Regarding .pdb: I'm not sure. Is the file created unconditionally? If so, a
small tweak to V2 will make it install that file. If not, I need to know the
conditions when the file is created.
