.pdb files are not created because /pdb:None is set as an option on line 415 of  Removing the /pdb:None works to write the .pdb file and allow symbols to be loaded in the VS 2008 debugger in the one extension I tried.  Anyone know why /pdb:None was added?

See the subversion history. It was added in r14344, which supposedly originated from Thomas Heller, so he should know.

Thomas, what's the reason for suppressing PDB files?

/pdb:None is still set in  Does this need changing in this file, or a more modern equivalent, so that symbols can be loaded in the debugger?

/pdb:None is referenced on #4214.  As there is more detail on that issue I recommend that this is closed.

Are you saying close this as a duplicate?  That would be fine with me.  I still think the /pdb:None should be removed if it hasn't been already.

Yes, close this as a duplicate.  I'll put up a patch on #4214.
