I have been losing time for NetBSD to real life, and I need some help on gdb
on various platforms! We'd like to get as much as possible in by 1.4 - at
the *very* least, have all previous platforms working - and some platforms
are not even tested with gdb 4.17.
I have re-enabled gdb on all platforms except powerpc and sparc64, so that
problems can be more rapidly identified and solved. THIS IS YOUR WARNING -
on some platforms listed below, a "make build" will result in a

- vax: NOT TESTED!
