I'm not sure that I understand exactly what you're trying to do, but if
Daniel says it can't be done in GDB, then I dont think it can be done in
Emacs, as Emacs can only use the output that GDB gives it.

This bit is straightforward: Emacs 21 uses --fullname option (although it is
hidden to the user). For example, try:
gdb --fullname `prog'
from the command line, then step a few times. You'll see the current line,
that Emacs uses, get printed out.
