Currently dump_syms on Linux has a bug where it fails to dump stabs symbols from 64-bit binaries. Unfortunately NSS has -gstabs hardcoded into its makefiles: http://mxr.mozilla.org/mozilla-central/source/security/coreconf/Linux.mk#120 so if we enable Breakpad on 64-bit Linux builds, we won't get usable Breakpad symbols for NSS. We either need to fix the symbol dumper or get NSS to obey our debug symbol preference.
My patches at: http://hg.mozilla.org/users/jblandy_mozilla.com/breakpad-mq/ fix this problem --- specifically, abstract-stabs.patch (which depends on the earlier patches in the series). These have been submitted to Google for review.
