I think gdb can do that. At least it can detect the prologue of a function and 
I think from this it derives how the stack pointer in the prologue. I should 
be able to find easily the correct file in which the magic happens if you want 
to take a look.

gdb does a much better job with gcc generated code, even without debugging 
symbol. I guess gdb is confused at the code generated by tcc.
