	I am the proud owner of a Fortran compiler which generates COFF style
debugging records.  The problem is that the system is a SVr4, and the native
assembler only understands ELF.  Thus I need an assembler for a i386 which
deals in COFF both at the front and the back end (SVr4 has a utility to
convert COFF object files to ELF).

	I was wondering if anyone had patches for GAS which would make gas
understand the COFF style source debugging records instead of/in addition to
the stabs type of source debugging records.  (I would also add the patches to
make GAS write a COFF object file).

	If anyone has other suggestions as to how I can solve this problem, I
would be interested in hearing them.
