Oh rats! Well, I guess we have have $debug and $release
expand to full path for debug and release variants on a specific compiler.
But that will require specifying the full compiler version, since 6.0 and 8.0
are different in this respect. And specifying full compiler version is what
you're trying to avoid :-(

Or we can approach the problem from a different angle and implement
some special hook that stops "threading" from showing up in
paths, just for testing.
