Known problems in GDB 5.1.1
Known problems in GDB 5.2
See also the bug database http://www.gnu.org/software/gdb/bugs/
Contrary to the GDB 5.1.1 announcement, the update did not contain
fixes to a i386 floating point problem. The latest sources do contain
the fix and it will be included in GDB 5.2.
Known problems in GDB 5.1

hppa2.0-hp-hpux10.20
--------------------
Due to a problem (conflicting types) with libiberty/regex.c, GDB 5.1
does not build on HP/UX 10.20 when using the HP supplied compiler.
Due to bit rot, GDB 5.1 does not work on HP/UX 10.20 when built with
GCC.
hppa2.0w-hp-hpux11.00
Due to a problem with ltconfig and long argument lines, GDB 5.1 does
not configure on HP/UX 11.00.
alpha-dec-osf5.1
GDB 5.1 has a number of problems on this platform (Ref PR gdb/237). A
GDB 5.1 built with ``CC="cc -DUSE_LDR_ROUTINES"'' is reported to work
much better.
alpha-dec-osf4.0e
GDB 5.1 is known to have problems on this platform (encounters an
internal error in the symbol table reader).
sparcv9-sun-solaris2.8
There are known problems with building GDB 5.1 using GCC 3.0.x for the
64 bit SPARC target (bad code gen). You could try a development
version of GCC.
i586-sco-sysv5uw7.1.1
gdb/487: The top level make files used to build GDB are not compatible
with HP/UX make. As a workaround, use GNU make.
There are known problems with GDB 5.1's thread support on this
platform. Non-threaded programs should work.
gdb/486: The HP/UX C compiler defaults to K&R mode but GDB only builds
with an ISO C compiler. The top level configuration incorrectly sets
CC to `cc' instead of `cc -Ae'. As a workaround, the correct compiler
can be specified as part of the configuration vis:
$ 'CC=cc -Ae' ./configure
*-*-*
GDB 5.1 assumes that the host C compiler implemends alloca(). GCC is
one such compiler. This problem should be fixed on the trunk.
