Sure, via gcc_compiled, but that's not the right way to approach this

First of all, what version of G77 did you test with?  And what format
of debug information?

Secondly, which compiler's debug information is correct?  Or are they
just different and triggering different bugs?

Third, it really sounds like we're going to need copyright assignment
papers from you.
