Of course, this only takes care of the build portion.  If you want to
(somehow) test the resulting gdb, you need to have access to an IA-64
machine running Linux or a simulator (running Linux).

See for info

i686-pc-linux-gnu cross ia64-unknown-linux GDB using HP's ski
simulator.  It is able to boot Linux and runs amazingly well.)
