Subject: [Bug general/6632] Debugging fhpd with fhpd does not print source

What's happening is that GCJ generates a main() stub which will then call the
java runtime starting up FHPD.  The generated main() lives in a temp file such
as the below.

The DWARF committee keep considering ways to address this; for instance how to
describe, in dwarf, something that really isn't debug-info but rather run-time info.

Anyway, if we could find the true entry point, then "run" could automatically
breakpoint in "main".

btw #1; fortran and ada have the same problem
btw #2: .stabs (another debug format) were, at one stage genrating an N_main stab.

perhaps check the DWARF web site to see if anything got resolved.
