Re: unable to compile gdb 6.0 as a cross gdb

HI Gleb;

  Doing this (export bash_cv_have_mbstate_t=yes) solved the current problem 
regarding the cross gdb build failure, however, I still end up with a gdb 
which appears to be an Intel executeable.

file gdb
gdb: ELF 32-bit LSB executable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), dynamically 
linked (uses shared libs), not stripped

  I notice in the output (compressed, attached) that the gcc is being called, 
not arm-arm9-linux-gnu-gcc.  To me that implies that --with-gcc=/path/to/gcc 
configure option is not working.
