That's what concerns me. That last time I put the effort into trying
a gdb 6.x, it turned out not to work on the first simulator BSP I tried.
That was a long time ago and I don't recall much else.

I suppose it is time to try gdb 6.3 and see what the current state of
the world is.

The gcc 4.0.1 RPMs need to finish first. :)
