I'd like to keep the content of the warning.
I realize it's just a performance issue if users don't get .gdb_index,
but in this case I think the current content of the warning is
justified.
It can't be that hard to come up with a simple way to be clear here. :-)

How about
"gdb -iex 'set use-deprecated-index-sections on' <program>"
or something along those lines?
