gdb/455: GDB doesn't build on a FreeBSD 4.4-STABLE system. The
problem is still being investigated.
gdb/816: When building GDB with GCC 3.0.1, GDB is unable to load a core
file properly. It generates several errors and warnings regarding
unhandled core file section types, incorrect endianness, the failure to
load the registers. Are also incorrectly reported: The program name, the
cause of the program death, and the call stack at the moment of the
death. This problem has been reported on alpha-osf4.0f and alpha-osf5.1a.
To work-around the problem, add -D__digital__ to the CFLAGS when
building GDB vis:
$ make CFLAGS='-O2 -D__digital__'
