The bug seems to be in the native implementation of GLOB, in bjam.exe. I
would like to build the engine with msvc toolset in debug mode with .PDB
symbols. How can I do that? Right now when linking bjam.exe we don't get a
.PDB (with Jam0.exe we have it, but I guess that's the bootstrap process, a
different animal, isn't it?).
