There are no Fedora 14 RPMs. is a
symlink to epel5.

It is meant to provide "legacy convenience" for people who could not 
affort upgrading to a newer Fedora version, when Fedora 14 went end of 
life. Meanwhile Fedora 15 also went out of life, so ... it's due time to 
remove the "Fedora 14" legacy symlink ;)

Correct. python support in gdb is disabled in all gdb-rpms, because 
cross-gdb's up to 7.4.1 (The shape of 7.5/7.4.9x is yet unknown)
have had a lot of problems with it and because there are unresolved 
python related packaging issues.

Good luck ... building gdb is far from being trivial. It's by far the 
most complex tool to build of the RTEMS toolchain.
