Taking advantage of debug libraries

Hello all,

now, as I get better and better on juggling with the various debugger  
options, I'm at a point where I'd like to get advantage of MS' C++  
runtime debug libraries.

Looking at MSDN, they recommend to turn a few switches in the IDE  
and ... but this won't work, as I can't re-link my binary.

Looking at what my app does, it obviously looks for mfc70.dll and is  
satisfied with getting mfc80.dll. To a Unix guy like me this looks  

All Visual C++ distributions I could have a look at come with mfc42*  
libraries, no matter how recent the IDE distro is. So I've put this  
into C:/windows/system and hoped for even more magic - but it didn't  
happen. Still segment names only in winedbg.

My question is: is it possible to take advantage of the mfc42d.dll/ 
mfc42d.map/mfc42d.pdb file trio to get debug symbols in winedbg? Or  
perhaps even in generic gdb?

If yes, where would I put these files or how would I load their  
tables into the debugger?
