It's been quite a while since I've worked with DWARF, but if I remember
correctly, there should be an attribute (DW_AT_TYPE, I think) for each
symbol that contains an offset to the type information. There is also
another attribute (DW_AT_LOCATION or DW_AT_LOC) that gives an offset to
debug info that describes the location of the variable. Also, don't
forget that a variable can possibly have multiple locations at different
execution points in the case of optimization.

Hope that helps!
