If you want to unwind userspace you need to build everything with
framepointers -- sadly some people have been lobbying to remove
framepointers from all distro builds, even though on x86_64 its nearly
free (i386 does have a significant performance benefit, sadly).

There's some work on-going to simply copy out the top of stack and let
dwarves go wild at it in userspace, but that isn't done yet.
