I was unaware of the sourceforge gdbf95 project, which provides a more
functional gdb than I had seen before. I've tried to build gdb-5.2.1 with
gcc-3.3, and it failed with many complaints about illegal code. It did
succeed with a buggy pre-3.0 gcc; there were I think 254 unexpected errors in
testsuite. Maybe that's acceptable? Anyway, I hope to be able soon to
whittle down a test case for the current breakage in gcc -funroll-loops, now
that I have a gdb which is able to step through code.
