Title:
  objdump does not follow .gnu_debuglink to show function names when
  disassembling file

Status in “binutils” package in Ubuntu:
  Triaged

Bug description:
  When disassembling a file using objdump

    objdump -d /usr/bin/xterm

  the symbols from /usr/lib/debug/usr/bin/xterm are not used, instead
  the whole text segment is shown as one big blob (.text) without
  boundaries at function level.

  Debug symbols are installed via xterm-dbgsym package.

  gdb is able to find the symbols and uses them successfully.

  This happens on maverick and natty.
