Maybe instead of using the the gdb.tar.bz2 symbolic link, we could
refer to a precise version of the gdb snapshot, so that the patches
have a chance to work.

The patches in snapshot/ haven't been updated since 2006, so I would
say that this part is unmaintained, which means that nobody uses it and
we can probably drop it.
