Gdb problems on r5k indy running sid


after a clean install of Debian followed by a dist-upgrade to sid
on my r5000 indy I'm new to linux on mips.

Since emacs-21.2 segfaults during startup from a xterm (bug reported),
I wanted to use gdb for post-mortem debugging - but alas, even when
called as gdb --version it hogs the CPU,

Any hints?

Remote debugging using gdbserver on the Indy w/ gdb on a x86 box via
tcp/ip doesn't work either - both programs seem to disagree on the
protocol, the host debugger says "Illegal hex digit 59" (;?) and drops
the connection.

In case it matters:

% dpkg -l gdb libc6
| Status=Not/Installed/Config-files/Unpacked/Failed-config/Half-installed
|/ Err?=(none)/Hold/Reinst-required/X=both-problems (Status,Err: uppercase=bad)
||/ Name           Version        Description
ii  gdb            5.2.cvs2002081 The GNU Debugger
ii  libc6          2.2.5-14.3     GNU C Library: Shared libraries and Timezone

% uname -a
Linux peachum 2.4.18-r5k-ip22 #1 Sun Jun 23 17:48:07 CEST 2002 mips unknown unknown GNU/Linux

Any help is greatly appreciated.
