 when I ran "ran ./configure --toolchain=msvc" the output on the screen was
 a long list of names and in the end the following

 License: LGPL version 2.1 or later
 Creating config.mak and config.h...
 libavutil/avconfig.h is unchanged

 WARNING: pkg-config not found, library detection may fail.

 I don't know what the warning means, so I continued and ran "make".
 Eventually make finished. I guess there were no errors because I did not
 saw any error messages.
 After "make" command the "ff_src" folder contains: ffmpeg.exe,
 ffmpeg_g.exe, ffprobe_g.exe, *.o,  *.d...
 "ff_src/libavcodec" and other folder contains *.o, *.d, *.a.

 But there is no pdb files!

 At first, I though that somehow gcc.exe runs and not cl.exe, but I checked
 and cl.exe does runs and not gcc.exe. So, why cl.exe outputs *.o, *.a...
 and not what cl.exe generally outputs lib, pdb? How to fix it?
