Hard-coded -g is a style bug, but I wonder if this works even with -g in

This may be related to the bug that -g is broken if the compilation is
via an intermediate asm file:

 	"cc -g -o foo foo.c"  != "cc -g -S foo.c; cc -g -o foo foo.s"

The former works, but the latter gives:

gdb also cannot find `main'.  But if everything is compiled without -g,
gdb can find `main'.

Similarly with multiple files, some compiled via asm and some via
(implicit) .o's.

I haven't found an incantantion that works.  The asm file contains lots
of debugging info, but the info is apparently incomplete or invalid.
The object file produced from the asm file differs from the one produced
directly from the C file.

Perhaps you already fixed this by importing newer binutils.
