It *could*, if we build gdb with its own copy of libbfd.
Which, iirc, is what Cygnus and the egcs people recommend.
(The only reason for the restricition is the way GDB uses `core_addr's.)
are you *sure* ?
i had problems with my libbfd and a cross sparc-netbsdelf (32bit)

ie, it didn't work for me until the 64 bit stuff was -gone-. with
it in, nm was giving 64bit addresses for 32bit objects. broken.
