I think we have a licensing problem here.

What license is that binary covered by?  Googling a bit I found
the source online, here:

 https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hd8h6f46.aspx

But it says:

// dia2dump.cpp : Dump contents of a pdb file using DIA.
//
//       Copyright (c) Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.
//

Thus, making that a non-free program that we have no right to
distribute?

I think the latter would indeed be better.
