I originally put the DBX_REGISTER_NUMBER define in rs6000.h, but quickly
found that was #undef'd by config/svr4.h, which is included later.  If
you want the define in rs6000.h, that can be done by either removing the
#undef in svr4.h, or including rs6000.h after svr4.h.  I've done the
work to verify that you can include rs6000.h later by adding a few
#undefs in rs6000.h, and defining SIZE_TYPE in rs6000/sysv4.h (in fact,
I wrote the patch that way in the first instance), but decided that
resulted in a much more intrusive patch.
