I've just released elfutils 0.149 and it's now on the queues for Fedora 14
and for updates to 12 and 13. In prior versions, eu-strip -g failed to
recognize .gdb_index and so would leave it in the stripped file rather than
moving it to the .debug file (or discarding it, without -f). So you might
want to put "Conflicts: elfutils < 0.149" in the Fedora gdb.spec for
versions providing gdb-add-index. It may not matter to bother, but it
seems like a good idea for the Fedora 14 rpm.
Note that ordinarily Fedora rpm builds use eu-strip without -g, so most
builds already done should not have been affected. Only packages that do
special magic in their .spec files to request eu-strip -g should have been
affected (glibc does this).
