There's no such thing as a tarball with only the directories required
by DJGPP.  You need a normal GDB tarball, like the ones prepared when
GDB is officially released.  djunpack.bat is designed to work with
such a general-purpose tarball.  You should also be able to use the
snapshot tarballs you can find on sourceware.
