I'm more worred by the far too frequent ``gdbserver isn't built'' 
e-mail.  If someone sends a bug report indicating a problem in 
gdbserver's signal handling (indicating they managed to build 
gdbserver), I'll be breaking out the bubbly! :-)

I'll leave that decision to when the proper fix is in the trunk.
