Note the "(cached)" in the above output. What happens if you remove
the toplevel config.cache and reconfigure in the gdb subdir
(./config.status --recheck)? If that doesn't solve the problem,
please post the output of the config.log file in the gdb subdirectory.

I'm not familiar with sparc64-linux, but if you want to build a native
sparc64-linux GDB, you'll need the 64-bit versions of the libs needed
by GDB I suppose.
