My linkcmds file (based on helas403) does call out the stab sections (as 
well as dwarfs).

I noticed that when I run gdb (via insight) I can actually see my source 
if I set my gdb source "directory" path just right. This seems to be 
because there are a lot of "../" constructs in the hello.exe file. For 
example I see things like this where source files appear in the binary:




I see the same things when files are entered when running gdb.

The number of ../'s seem to depend on something since they vary with 
file but not sure what. Any idea what controls this? (I have to set my 
"directory" possibly 9, 5, 6 levels beyond the "rtems-4.6.1" to see my 
source in gdb.)

If the ../'s weren't there, I could set my gdb directory to right before 
the "rtems-4.6.1" and gdb would append to that the correct file path. 
Anyone know what is going on here and if it is possible to get rid of 
the ../'s?
