  Sorry, can you just clarify something:  if you're cross-compiling for and
debugging an ARM target, why would you need to configure gdbserver for OS X?
As far as I understand it you run gdbserver on the target and would only need
to run plain old gdb itself on your Mac.

Can't think of a witty .sigline today....
