The problem can be circumvented by adding a


after the "#include "config/nm-linux.h"-line in config/s390/nm-linux.h (at 
least the current Debian gdb-source package version 5.2.cvs20020401-3 builds 
after this modification and gbd seems to work).

The problem arises from the unconditional definition of 
CHILD_PID_TO_EXEC_FILE at the end of config/nm-linux.h. According to the 
CVS-log this was added in Revision 1.11 of config/nm-linux.h on January, 8th. 
There were also changes made in config/<arch>/ for some architectures 
(linking with linux-proc.o), which, as far as I can judge it, avoid the above 
described problem on theses architectures. However s390 (and, as it seems, 
some other architectures), doesn't have a config/<arch>/ so no 
modifications were made for s390.

My question now: are we missing something for s390 because we don't have the 
config/s390/ or are the changes to config/s390/nm-linux.h that I 
described above a correct solution for the problem? Or would it instead be a 
better solution to add a "NATDEPFILES += linux-proc.o" to config/s390/
