GDB-5.2 and Wiggler

The newest version on the Macraigor web site ( uses
GDB 5.0, so it's possible that they haven't ported their Wiggler code
to 5.1 or newer.  (At least, that was true a few weeks ago when I looked.)

I'm still using gdb-5.0 for the same reason, which is also keeping me
from using the most recent gcc/newlib.
