Compile the GDB

Did You execute configure ?
I did this some time ago, and as far is i remember bfd.h is created with
Choose configure --host=[your host] --target=powerpc-linux-gnu.

Compiling gdb should work then.

The next problem will arise, when trying to compile gdbserver. It requires,
that --host and --target are configured to the same value. But i did not
manage to do it without manually editing some header-files

Does anyone have compiled the GDB5.x with the Hardhat ppc_8xx-gcc(version
2.95.2)? I always get some .h files missing error, like the bfd.h.
