The encoding of the addresses can be substantially different.
Pc-relative and base-relative are the popular ones. You'd
need target-specific hackery to know what the base address is
for the base-relative addresses.
That more and more differences crept in is the reason why we no
longer attempt to emit only one of .debug_frame or .eh_frame.
