Re: gdb-970817 vs i386-pc-solaris2.5.1


GDB is not supported on ix86/solaris, and I do not have access
to a ix86/solaris system, so I can't comment on the first two patches.
(I suspect however that a better solution would be to create a new
config/i386/tm-i386sol2.h file, which gets used by i386sol2.mt, includes
tm-i386v4.h and adds the TIDGET definition from config/sparc/tm-sun4sol2.h).

The linker problem happens if you use gcc and the native ld.
A simple workaround for now is to remove
-Xlinker -export-dynamic
by hand from the INTERNAL_LDFLAGS in gdb/Makefile.
