cross-debugger build problem

I wish to use gdb to disassemble sparc-sun-linux binaries (with debug info) on an i386-*-linux host. I use gdb 5.0 on RedHat 6.2. I'm going to look into vmlinux built for sparc-linux.
While being not sure whether this is supported (I did read excellent gdb/doc/gdb.ps, as well as mailing list archives), I did "configure --target=sparc-sun-linux" and "make". The build failed at gdb/solib.c with errors like
solib.c: In function `solib_map_sections':
solib.c:369: structure has no member named `lm_addr'
solib.c: In function `solib_add_common_symbols':
solib.c:431: storage size of `inferior_rtc_symb' isn't known
solib.c:458: `N_COMM' undeclared (first use in this function)
(full output is lengthy, I will send it if anyone can help).
Does gdb support disassembling of binaries built for a target different from the host? If yes, how should I build gdb? Otherwise, what are my alternatives (other than running native gdb on sparc-linux)?
Thanks in advance,
