It's a bug nobody ever explored.  gas under my FreeBSD system
correctly emits DWARF-2 debugging information when run with the
appropriate -g option, the very same version of gas configured for the
AVR only emits incomplete debugging symbols.  It's likely to be only a
configuration option, yet nobody had the time to analyze what's needed
for this to happen.
