If by remote you mean being able to use a BDM cable, like the P&E
Micro., to a compatiable CPU, it 68332; then I have some code that will
let you do this on FreeBSD.  It is based upon code for Linux.  I have a
patch set for gdb-4.16.  I am working on bringing those over to gdb-4.17
today and TMW.  Look at if the DNS hasn't
made it you you yet will work also.

microsoft: "where do you want to go today?"
linux:     "where do you want to go tomorrow?"
BSD:       "are you guys coming, or what?"
