Are there equivalent tools/procedures to IDA's FLIRT signatures, when working on statically linked binaries, with other disassemblers?

Is it at all possible with GDB/objdump?

    Well, the DWARF format is open, you could always write code that generates or transforms existing information. Given FLIRT as an example I assume that you have such information.

I'm not sure if other tools offer the same functionality, but if you have IDA, you can do File->Produce File->Create MAP File to create a .MAP file with the names that IDA determined (or which were manually created by the user). Many other debugging tools have the ability to load .MAP files, so I have used this trick for example with SoftICE and OllyDbg.
