Yes; you have to configure and build gdb as if you wanted it to
run native on the ppc; only then can you configure and build gdbserver.

Heh. gdbserver is broken at the moment. I posted recently with
almost identical questions. There is talk of fixing it, but I
don't know if anyone's working on it. Similarly, there's talk
of making it handle multithreaded programs, but I don't know
if anyone's working on that, either.
