I've had that problem before, and it's not a PPC problem.  GDB doesn't
handle signals that it hasn't been explicitly told about, and it seems
that the pthreads library uses an odd one (signal number 31).

I have a quickie diff against gdb 5.0 to add support for that signal
at http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~cemerson/patches/gdb5_sig31.diff
which may hopefully let you get as far as the real problem.
