Turns out that the Open Watcom compiler, linker and debugger support 
DWARF debug info in 16-bit DOS executables:


The way they do it is by appending an ELF image, containing only the 
debug info after the MZ executable. Since FPC already supports DWARF, 
I'm planning to try to get it working for DOS. (Note that, even though I 
already enabled it, it doesn't work yet.)
