We create PDBs for our microsoft/git installers, such as in this
recent build: [1]

[1] https://dev.azure.com/gvfs/ci/_build/results?buildId=18994&view=artifacts&type=publishedArtifacts

Unzipping, I see PDBs for the git-* files listed in this command,
minus the ones that don't exist. So if this line is what creates
the PDBs, then it is not erroring out when trying to create the
PDBs for commands that don't exist.

Thanks,
-Stolee
