The GNU binutils package includes the objcopy program, which can
convert fully linked m68k COFF files to IEEE-695, including converting
all the debugging information. Do something like
objcopy -O ieee --debugging COFF IEEE
The convertor seems to work well when converting stabs debugging
information, as generated by gcc when configured with --with-stabs. I
don't think it's been tested much with standard COFF debugging
information, but the code is there and it ought to work.
