I have a working version of gdb which is 4.17 (From SGI CVS) - If someones
interested it would be nice to port it to 4.18 which is the current
one and feed it upstream and into the package ...

With this working gdb it should be possible to start debugging strace
which compiles but doesnt run. Ld.so is a differnet thing. I am not
sure if this is a glibc or binutils bug. I am in contact with 
the Author of the binutils patches for symbol versioning who
also did some glibc patches ...
