RFC: Remove gdb complaints from gdbinit.in

I think this is more aggravating than helpful.  It fills with crud my 
screen and from what I've heard in various places, it's not clear 
whether it's a gdb or a gcc bug.

Regardless of where the bug is, it certainly is very aggravating and I 
don't really see its usefulness.

Any strong objections to this patch?
