Even if you don't have DIA SDK, llvm-pdbdump will still work with the "raw"
subcommand, just not the "pretty" subcommand.  That said, I would be
interested in finding out why it thinks you don't have DIA installed.  You
could do some diagnostics by littering the CMake with some print statements
to see if the directory it's looking for exists or what else the problem
might be.
