I have fixed this now, and attached a patch to switch rtems-sparc to gdb-7.8.1.
The patch goes on top of the previous, and could probably be squished with it.

The culprit was that FSF does not distribute .bz2 files of gdb-7.8.1, only .gz and .xz .
I fixed this by adding a new source-builder/config/gdb-7.8.1-1.cfg file. The sis patch
for gdb-7.7 also applies on gdb-7.8.1 so no need to update rtems-tools.
