Recompile your original source and generate the ELF .o files at that point. So far as I know, there is no COFF2ELF utility (unless you write it). You could also try using a different linker that accepts COFF (like GNU's) but that opens up a whole new can of worms when you try to debug since the Sunsoft debugger will also be incompatible. :-(
