I wonder why you say that those who distribute a precompiled gdb would
also have to distribute the gcc source. Do you mean they would have to
host it alongside the precompiled binary, or they would have to include
it in the package users download? Isn't it enough that it's available at
gcc.gnu.org and/or mingw.org?
