if you are adding a new processor and a new file format , i guess you
need to first get bfd and libopcodes ,dejagnu, <maybe cgen> , binutils,
gas, ld ,<maybe> gcc.. newlib up before you can do much with gdb.
unless ofcourse you already have a toolchain that produces code.
Coming back to your question AFAIK you would definitely need bfd and
opcodes up before you could do much with gdb. (The reason for gcc , gas,
ld is that you would need them to generate the code which you would like
to debug :-))
Maybe I have missed something .
