Creating a venv using "py -m venv" fails when the debug binaries are installed in the system-wide installation.

Note the below uses the 32-bit installation, but that is probably not significant.

C:\Daten\pyv>py -3.7-32 -m venv v37-32
Error: [Errno 2] No such file or directory: 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\Python37-32\\lib\\venv\\scripts\\nt\\python_d.exe'

The same command line works fine when using a Python installation that does not have the debug binaries installed.

Python version is 3.7.3.

Thanks! Two issues here:
* symlink_or_copy doesn't verify that the source file exists after rewriting the path
* Tools/msi/lib/lib_files.wxs doesn't include the debug launchers
