Okay, I can fix that.

Nope, I didn't.

That is possible as well.  I'm really not devoted to owning this
package that much.  I was merely attempting to push it back as I
added it to our usage of BuildRoot.  To that end, shall I abandon
the process (as I clearly am not willing to do it justice)?

It is no skin off my nose whether it gets put into BuildRoot, I was
only pushing it back as I didn't know it was there until someone else
I work with pointed out that this *seems* to be the basic library GDB
is based off of, thus could be useful in our embedded system.

Anybody willing to carry this flag for me?  I'm just not that committed
to it.
