nim c --cc:vcc --debugger:native t.nim used to generate pdb file. Now it no longer does it.

According to --listCmd, these parameters are not being passed during linking phase to vccexe.

Is there something like vcc.options.linker.debug and vcc.cpp.options.linker.debug available in nim.cfg? If yes, then they need to have "/Zi /FS /Od" as well.

I prefer to patch extccomp.nim these days. Less confusing to debug the logic when it's not split between configuration and code.
