Yes, appears to work. At least it gets me one step further until the
next problem pops up, in buffer *DWARF for mod.o*

/usr/bin/objdump: unrecognized option '--dwarf-depth=1'
Usage: /usr/bin/objdump <option(s)> <file(s)>
 Display information from object <file(s)>.
 At least one of the following switches must be given:

$ objdump --version
GNU objdump (GNU Binutils; openSUSE 11.1) 2.19

What I am wondering is

$ avr-objdump -d mod.o | head -n 3

mod.o:     file format elf32-avr

Isn't avr-objdump the right objdump to use for that architecture?

$ avr-objdump --version
GNU objdump (GNU Binutils)
