Last I checked, this wasn't supported by BinUtils on any COFF targets, so that won't work here. MS COFF is probably the only COFF target that will get any work done in the future, due to Windows popularity (as Cygwin and MinGW are tier two). But even that isn't "top tier" for GCC / BinUtils developers. They mostly only focus on ELF and consider COFF (and others?) as heavily deprecated (and even COFF "-gcoff" debugging since GCC 4.5.x seems broken, at least for DJGPP, in lieu of newer DWARF, e.g. v4, which is heavily favored these days).


This actually does now "mostly" seem to work with latest DJGPP BinUtils, but I wouldn't forcibly rely on it.
