When an assembly is found through a 'ProjectReference', its .mdb file is copied to the output as a related file. For non-private assemblies referenced with 'Reference' and 'HintPath' the .mdb is currently not copied.
I've attached my local patch, which causes the .mdb files to be copied. I'm not sure if I made the change in a reasonable place, or if the behaviour is even desired, so any feedback is appreciated.

We deprecated xbuild and recommend using msbuild instead. Switching to msbuild will also most likely resolve the issue you reported.
