backporting gdb for debugging PIE data

hey backports folks:

http://bugs.debian.org/346409 is still open in squeeze.  when you try to
look at a coredump from a position-independent executable (PIE), gdb
gives this error message:

  warning: The current binary is a PIE (Position Independent
  Executable), which GDB does NOT currently support.  Most debugger
  features will fail if used in this session.

apache2 is a PIE (as one example of something it would be nice to be
able to debug).

I've backported gdb 7.3-1 to squeeze, and it needed no changes to build
correctly.  It even works properly :)

Any objections to my uploading it to squeeze-backports?  anything i
should be aware of?
