How make Release build use references to Release components & visa versa?

My solution contains multiple C# and C++ components as well as a deployment
project.

In my top-level C# WinForms application, I added references to some
components by browsing to the \bin\debug\*.dll of the desired component.
How can I make it use a debug build of a component for a debug build, and a
release build of a component for a release build?

Thanks in advance for any tips or direction,

-Ed

We created a build tool that sets the references on the fly based on whether
it's debug or release. It's too bad VS doesn't allow you to separate them
out in the project.

Doesn't VS do this itself if you set a reference to a project instead of a dll?

Project references are OK. The problem will come with references to foreign
assemblies (those not built in your solution).
