yeah - that's a problem.  we don't want to have debug info in the
actual kernel itself, so perhaps we should also have a way to have
this file installed into /usr/libdata/debug/netbsd.debug, with a
patch to the generate it in the obj dir, but i'm
not sure how works for updating or sysinst choosing a kernel from
a list..

we could also just distribute the full netbsd.gdb for each build,
and have the user manually deal with that, as a first step.
