As contribs for windows mainly build static archives (the built target 
executables aren't really used, and normally no DLLs are built), is there 
any actual need to patch libtool at all, and try to generate PDB files 
for these libs? For building just static libraries that contribute the 
right kind of debug info, wouldn't just the -gcodeview flag be enough?
