Best thing to do first is download an up-to-date version of GDB.  See:

If you still have problems, remember to include the GDB version info

At present this doesn't happen :-(
You'll need to build a GDB configured for your target:

	..../configure --target=powerpc-eabi

for instance.  That is likely the problem.

Not really.  It was recently made its own chapter (so it is easier to
find) but still needs significant work.
