Nope, it's not a GCC feature anyway, it's a patch to avr-binutils
(affecting in particular avr-objcopy).  The patch never really made it
into a state where I would submit it to the FSF, and as AVR-COFF has
now finally been deprecated, I've got zero motivation to do anything
about it anymore.

You can find the binutils-2.16 version of the patch here:


Please mind the README file:


Note that of course, AVR Studio and VMLAB aren't your only versions.
You could as well use GDB (plus one of its frontends as you prefer),
either against AVaRICE and a JTAG ICE (JTAG ICE mkII support being
currently beta), or against simulavr or simulavrxx as backends.

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
