  Not linker, but librarian (lib.exe). And what do you mean by "wrong

  The absolute .pdb file path stored in each .obj file (and the .lib
file in static builds
is the archive of the .obj files), so .pdb file will be found by linker
if you don't move it.
But if you copied the .lib file from the %BUILDDIR%/lib directory to
another computer
and build some project, which is uses that library, you need also copy
corresponding vcx0.pdb file from the %BUILDDIR%/src directory. This is
for 4.2.0.

  In 4.2.x you still need copy the corresponding .pdb file, but in this
case from the
directory where the .lib file is located and the name of the .pdb file
coincide with
the name of .lib file.
