For remote serial debugging, you just need some ELF-based target so gdb can
grok the executable's symbols.  The rest of the OS-specific code in gdb is
not relevant to the remote case.  So i386-linux, i386-elf, i386-freebsd, etc,
probably all work just the same for this purpose.  (Most people's actual
experience is with a native x86 GNU/Linux or native x86/FreeBSD gdb.)
