Actually, I wonder how you (Richard) and other GCC hackers work with
and debug GCC, because it is a real pain in the ass.

* All the TREE_ macros don't work.

* __extension__ prevents GDB from evaluating many things.

* announce_function dumps slow down Emacs (and the shell when working
via SSH) when debugging anything related to libstdc++ (or any large
testcase).

* Hitting auto-completion in GDB means staring at the window for 5-10
minutes until it decides to stop listing stuff.

There are quite a few other annoyances, but these are the most common
(perhaps I should make a list in the wiki).

Cheers,

Manuel.
