Cooperation between GDB and 'make' is totally unnecessary.

cc -g -S hello.c

Look at hello.s; the first two ".stabs" lines should mention the working
directory of the compiler, and the command line argument for the source file.

If GDB cannot find the source from the executable, then either you goofed or
there is a bug that should be fixed.

I don't think "ease of debugging" is a valid argument against the src/gnu
directory -- teach your development tools how to find source files correctly.
