This reminds me of a question I had: Should properties get propagated
to inline targets? If I have this:
lib foo : [ obj a : a.c <optimization>off ] b.c : <define>FOO ;
b.c gets compiled with FOO defined, but a.c doesn't. I expected it to
and was surprised when it didn't.

I got .pdb files at least partially working. If you want, I can try to
finish it up and submit a patch.
