Two .pdb files, but both in src/engine/bootstrap: jam0.pdb and vc10.pdb.
None in src/engine/bin.ntx86.

I don't think I stated that clearly. Many different pairs of .obj files,
which I think come from the same source. The size difference in the
example below makes me think that the same source-file was compiled with
and without debug symbols between jam0 and bjam:

F:\boost\msvc\master\tools_bb>dir /s function.obj
  Volume in drive F is 2013-03
