Please use @option for command-line switches.

I'd suggest a "@pindex bfdsymify" here.

This is better written as:

  @item -o @var{output-file}

  Output to the specified file @var{output-file}.

There are similar issues with FSDB docs.

I suggest to document the FSDB environment variables as well.
