Funny you decided to port your SunOS app to Windows NT instead of Solaris,
or you would have found the same ability there. The Solaris ELF based
tools (adb, dbx, acc, etc) all just leave debug stabs in the object (.o)
file and place a reference to the objects in the executable. That keeps
the final executable almost as small as the nondebug version.
