There should be fairly large changes in the generated Dwarf-3 debug

Our object file format is a.out, so we cannot use Dwarf as debug
information, we must use stabs instead. I looked at the generated asm,
the code produced by gcc 2 and 4 are similar (using stabs), but not
identical. The problem is somewhere in the produced stabs...
