I tried searching for linkers with DJGPP/COFF support

Club Dr.DOS wiki cites ALINK:
http://www.unet.univie.ac.at/~a0503736/php/drdoswiki/index.php?n=Main.DevelAsm#toc18

This little FAQ cites JLOC:
http://exec.h1.ru/docs/os-devel-faq/os-faq-linker.html

Anyway, maybe nasm output format can be tweaked for an another linker. It's able to generate different formats. Just the sort exerpt:
bin - flat-form binary files (e.g. DOS .COM, .SYS)
coff - COFF (i386) object files (e.g. DJGPP for DOS)
obj - MS-DOS 16-bit/32-bit OMF object files
ieee - IEEE-695 (LADsoft variant) object file format

Edit: props to Dietmar. :) The package is clean and easy to understand/hack on. I will play with it a bit.
