I do have to apologize for the noise.

I was hitting this problem while investigation something on our branch
that uses boost version 1.34.1

On our main branch, where we're currently on 1.44, PDB files *are* in
fact correctly generated also for static libs.

Note that my note still (1.44 - I have not tried the latest 1.47)
applies though:
