I was going to do Just that. But I have thus far been unable to get
GDB6.6 to build on my RH9 box. Compiles just fine on my FC6. I'll try
your suggestion of setting LDFLAGS with a -static option and will let
you know the result. Will also try the --disable-shared option.

Actually, --disable-shared normally only generates static libraries
instead of shared libraries.
Setting LDFLAGS or CFLAGS should work. However GDB may or may not when
moved between systems; I do not recommend the use of static binaries.
