After moving to centos 6.5 I rebuilt gdb 7.6.  It seemed ok but the python direcotry ( /usr/local/share/gdb/python/gdb ) was empty.
Checking the make install output showed it complained about missing makeinfo.

I installed the textinfo package,  re-configured made and installed gdb and now the python directory is present.

Seems like an instance of the "missing makeinfo" build problem.
