Not emitting them was unintentional, and I imagine getting them back
would be straightforward.  However, I don't know a lot about dbxout.c
and right now I have things to do for the 3.4.0 release (which doesn't
include these patches) that take priority - so I'm not likely to try
to fix this this week.

Would you please file a bug report against GCC, and assign it to me?
And any further investigation you could do would be greatly appreciated.
