This is a question I am interested in also, as we are using pSOS on a
project with the PPC, and I would like to be able to use gdb in a
cross platform setup together with dejagnu to automate regression
testing, but the pSOS library is in MRI format.  We have the sources
for everything else, so we just need a way to port the pSOS libraries
to gcc and we are in business.  

I have not had the time to look into this personally, but with system
test looming in the near future, I sure would like to use
gcc/gdb/dejagnu.  I also prefer to debug with gdb under emacs, so I
can edit the sourc code right there when I find a problem, and then
recompile right on the spot.
