What are your pdb files named -- vc90.pdb or libmylib.pdb? If you are
generating the default-named PDB file for your library, vc90.pdb, then
when the linker finds a different vc90.pdb first (the one generated
for your target executable's source), it may stop looking for others
when linking your exe.
I do know that if you use <debug-store>database (i.e., /Zi) for all
components (your library and your executable), together with the
changes document in
http://lists.boost.org/boost-build/2009/04/21691.php, so that you
generate PDB files named uniquely for each build artifact, then msvc
with boost.build successfully finds all required PDB files during link
and generates a useful pdb for my final target binary. I use this
configuration every day.
