I'm using OSX 10.4;

imac-g5-de-olivier-kaloudoff:/dev root# uname -a
Darwin imac-g5-de-olivier-kaloudoff.local 8.3.0 Darwin Kernel Version
8.3.0: Mon Oct  3 20:04:04 PDT 2005; root:xnu-792.6.22.obj~2/RELEASE_PPC
Power Macintosh powerpc

Unfortunatelly, neither symbolic nor hard link did the trick with gdb.
