I added standalone debug support to FreeBSD's base system build last
year.  Assuming you have an executable 'exe.full' containing debug
data, it's basically just:

objcopy --strip-debug --add-gnu-debuglink=exe.debug exe.full exe
objcopy --only-keep-debug exe.full exe.debug

(I'm not sure if any linkers support creating standalone debug
directly, but ld from FreeBSD's rather-old binutils doesn't.)
