[cfe-dev] Clang for windows: Release with pdb option generates huge binaries

i'm not sure if this is a bug or a missing option. when building release 
code with clang in msvc my binaries are way to big when compiling with 
option /Zi. it seems the linker doesn't strip out all the debug 
informations. i did a full rebuild once with /Zi and once with no debug 
informations and the resulting binaries ended up with 17 MB vs 7 MB ... 
in my opinion all the debug informations should go into the pdb file. at 
least this is what i see when usign the intel compiler or msvc compiler.
