GDB's home page (http://sources.redhat.com/gdb/) doesn't contain a
source RPM. It does refer to tarballs. Did you mean that?
Something helpful would be to send an e-mail to the Mandrake maintainers
asking why this is so. Sounds very like they have local changes and GDB
would really like to get them integrated back.
