cf. gdb/gdb.add:

%if "@tool_target@" == "microblaze-rtems at rtems_api@"
%ifos mingw mingw32
%if "%{gdb_version}" == "7.5"
# Mingw lacks sys/times.h, required by the microblaze simulator
%define build_sim --disable-sim

# grep sys/times.h sim/microblaze/*
sim/microblaze/interp.c:#include <sys/times.h>

Mingw doesn't have <sys/times.h> => FTBFS

I don't know, if it _worked_ - It did compile, even though gdb-7.4 uses 
the same include <sys/times.h>

So, my (wild) guess would be microblaze-gdb-7.4 had not been built 
correctly and now is victim of something having been fixed elsewhere[1] 
or something now is broken [2]


[1] The GDB-7.x series always has had a lot of configuation related 
issues. AFAICT, most of these issues had existed before, but now seem to 
be more visible, with mingw apparently being the worst case scenario.

[2] Since gdb-7.5 was released, gdb-7_5-branch has seen patches which 
could be relevant here.
