The issue of a proprietary  DLL has long been fixed.   There is no
proprietary DLL necessary to compile GDB.   The communication
to Macraigor devices is handled through LibRemote, a daemon, which 
includes no GPL'ed code.

New releases are using the latest versions of all the tools.   However,
in some cases we have to use old versions because we have found 
problems with newer versions of some of the tools.   I am struggling
with GDB for MIPS64 now.   The 64 bit symbols are not handled properly.
