 Eventually make finished. I guess there were no errors because I did not
 saw any error messages.

 ffmpeg_g.exe, ffprobe_g.exe, *.o,  *.d...

 > 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?

 cehoyos, I'm sorry for disturbing, but this very urgent to me in order to
 understand how some functions in ffmpeg works in order to accomplish my
 project. Therefore I need those pdb files in order to debug and see how
 ffmpeg works
