  I think that specifying the relative path wouldn't change anything
that the .obj files contains the full pdb path (and .lib file is just
set of the
.obj files).

  I've tried the MSVC 7.1 and MSVC 8 and found that if the .pdb file
in the directory with corresponding .lib file (even if they are moved
from the
original directory) the debug information was found (I haven't got the
warnings about inaccessible debug information).
