[ODE] Linker warnings on Windows

I recommend shipping the PDB file for the debug build. If you need the 
sources, you can download them; if not, you will at least get meaningful 
stack traces.

What I especially recommend against would be to check in solutions that 
did not enable debugging information by default. (it should stay on by 
default in release, too, btw).
