Okay, I'm looking at a PR (gdb/7), and the user has pasted in their
gdb startup message:
GNU gdb 5.0

This GDB was configured as "i686-pc-linux-gnu"...
Quick, which version of gdb is this?
It might be gdb 5.0. Or it might be any CVS version of gdb made between
the release of gdb 5.0 and 2001-01-24 (when the copyright date changed
This bothers me. I've filed a PR about it.
Can we please use something other than "5.0" for CVS gdb, such as
"5.1-experimental-$(DATE)", or even just "5.1-experimental"?
