OK, I just posted something to gdb-announce.

These three should be identical.
Not quite. i386-*-elf* uses a register numbering scheme for stabs
(stabs-in-ELF to be precise) that differs from traditional stabs used
for a.out and COFF.
Can this go? I think it is the old old Novell thing.
Right now it's only supported as a target, and it was really trivial
to add. So I'll keep it.
ChrisF would like the PE deleted! It's been bug reported.
Ah, well, it's basically identical to i386-*-aout* and i386-*-coff*.
The only "support" is the line in configure.tgt. I'll leave it to
Chris to decide what to do with it.

What is this machine?
I think this can go (or at least an attempt made).
I'll leave it alone for now.

Obsoleting os9kread is on the to do list as well.

I'll probably start making a real mess next weekend ;-). I hope it'll
be acceptable that some targets will be broken for a few days. I
don't think I can keep things compiling without resorting to one large
