I played a bit with objdump -S and addr2line seems to work.

My program:


#include <sw.h>

void fct(Sw *sw)
  sw_frames_get(sw, NULL, NULL);

int main()
  Sw *sw;

  sw = sw_init(NULL);     /* This is line 13 */
  /* fct2(sw); */


  return 0;

objdump -S sw;exe gives:

  Sw *sw;

  sw = sw_init(NULL);
  4016c1:	c7 04 24 00 00 00 00 	movl   $0x0,(%esp)
  4016c8:	e8 2b 00 00 00       	call   4016f8 <_sw_init>
  4016cd:	89 44 24 1c          	mov    %eax,0x1c(%esp)

and "addr2line 4016c1" returns line 13, which is the line where
sw_init() is called
