First things first... switch to 4.5-beta3 in

Although there are no Coldfire BSPs included, David Fiddes has done
extensive work with RTEMS on the Coldfire.  If the PE Micro is
supported directly by gdb 4.18, you might be able to use the
RPMs.  Otherwise, there are bdm patches in the contrib directory
and RTEMS patches for 4.18 under c_tools/source.

What is on that eval board?
