Yes, the principles are well understood.

You don't need to apologize about not having the information I asked
for.  But there's no need to be harsh, either.  Guido wanted to get
specific help for his specific problem; if no one has the answer, then
the ensuing silence will be self-explanatory ;-)

(Btw, there's nothing DJGPP-specific in what Guido asked: DJGPP
supports both stabs and DWARF2 debugging, so if someone can answer the
questiions for GNU/Linux, say, they will be good for DJGPP as well.)
