  I used Dan Kegel's crosstool version 0.24 (
to create an arm9 cross tool chain.  I'm now trying to create an arm9 native

  One of the developers I'm trying to support says that he gets the error
msg"GDB can't read core files on this machine".  So he wants an arm9 native
gdb rather than aarm9 crossgdb.

  I have downloaded the gdb 6.0 source, expanded it, created a sibling
directory for my gdb build, executed configure and make using the attached script from the gdb build directory I created.  The captured
output is also attached as kaw_make.log.  There is mention of config.log, so
I attached it as well.

  All I need is a gdb that can read an arm9 corefile.  Whether that is a
 cross gdb (host: i686-pc-linux, target: arm-arm9-linux) or an arm9 native
 gdb, it doesn't matter.
