It might be usefull to do "make install" (as root user) after the make.
It will then install the debugger to /usr/local/bin.

By entering "gdb -b 9600", you invoke the local (native) debugger.
(for x86 I presume).
If you want to debug powerpc applications, you need the powerpc debugger you
had made earlier.
You made this debugger with "--target=powerpc-elf", so the debugger will be
$> powerpc-elf-gdb -b 9600 /dev/ttyS0
and see if it helps to solve your problem.
