I got to compile and I'm starting to debug it. The problem was that I was
using "build.bat vc12 --debug" and in this case vcvarsall.bat complains
about a missing argument. If I do "build.bat msvc --debug" it uses visual
studio 2008 (vc9) which builds the b2.exe and the .PDB as expected. I'll
tell you if I find anything interesting.
