I've worked with Win32 stack traces with the Borland compiler. StackWalk
works fine; it's getting the symbol names that's complicated.

There are some symbol helper APIs (e.g., dbghelp.dll), but they only support
VC++. I've got an alternative solution specifically for Borland that uses
map files, similar to Jani Kajala's for VC++.
